UK Alumni Bursary Programme

Over the past few years the UK based UCT alumni have supported a number of undergraduate and postgraduate students studying various disciplines, ranging from Medicine to the Arts, French to Geology, Environmental studies and Sciences.  Last year the programme supported six undergraduates and eight postgraduates. All of these students are from historically disadvantaged backgrounds and could not have contemplated furthering their studies without financial aid.  We are immensely grateful to all alumni who have made contributions through the years.

If you would like to make a donation to the UK Alumni Bursary Programme, however small, please download a pledge form, and send your donation to UCT Trust.  Every penny received will go direct to UCT to support more students.  Remember – if you are a UK tax payer, please sign the Gift Aid declaration which enables the UCT Trust to claim an extra 25% from the Inland Revenue to go towards the bursaries.


If you would like to help more young people achieve their dreams, please consider making a contribution to the UK Alumni Bursary Programme.
