You could be that student!
Ever dreamed of a future where freedom of expression is encouraged? Ever wanted a career that enables you to be more, well, you? Ever imagined living every day finding new ways to express yourself? It’s called creativity.
Who can apply?
For 2016, only Grade 12 learners in KwaZulu-Natal, who come from a disadvantaged background will be eligible.
What do you get?
The Creative Future Scholarship covers just about everything – fees, study materials, transport, accommodation and living expenses.
The current total value of the Creative Future Scholarship per student (excluding computer & tuition fees) is R71,000!
Plus it offers mentorship, internships and finally employment in the communications industry after studying. But don’t think this is a free ride. Creativity isn’t easy. The selection process alone involves a review of your portfolio, a creative challenge and a grueling interview. If you qualify, we promise you an exciting and fulfilling ride.
The top candidates will be invited to an interview and the recipient of the scholarship will be announced at the awards ceremony during Loeries®Creative Week Durban 2016.
