What is Coloured Girls Bursary Foundation?
For Coloured Girls Bursary Foundation is a not for profit organisation. Our sole drive for the organisation is to provide a platform for girl children who are growing up in “coloured” communities with no or little access to resources to ensure that they become independent, intellectual and strong women who will become role models and mentors of tomorrow. You are invited to apply for the 2024 intake. If accepted in the first round, we will advise the next phase of requirements to ultimately be a recipient of For Coloured Girls Bursary Foundation. Applications close 31 January 2024.

The programme has three development phases to ensure that the participants complete their chosen educational path.
Grade 8 & 9:
Each new entrant will have to undergo a Psychometric Test to determine their specific psychological, academic and skills levels. In this way we will be able to assist participants with decision making for career choices and in addition use the outcome of these tests to provide support for their individual development
Grade 10 & 11:
This phase focuses on providing a mentor for each girl child to play the role of teacher, sponsor, host, patron, guide, exemplar, counselor, and supporter. In addition mentors will be approached because of their expertise and passion for development. Each mentee will be paired with a mentor with similar career interests to ensure that the mentee will have easy access to opportunities. Relationships will be built with higher educational institutions and career guidance counselors to assist students with the early application process as well as support for learning challenges at these institutions and how to overcome them.
Matric & Higher Educational Institutions:
The final phase of the Foundation is to ensure that students are ready for higher education by closing the gap between high school and higher educational institutions. Our psychosocial approach looks at our students in the context of the combined influence that psychological factors and the surrounding social environment have on their physical and mental wellness and their ability to function.The support includes mental health counseling, education, spiritual support, group support, of students, their families and communities. In addition access to higher education bursaries will be provided to each student.
