Uplifting SA's youth

Join our community

The Rosebridge Foundation was established with the intention of providing a promising future to disadvantaged youth who cannot afford to further their tertiary education due to financial restraints.

We are about empowering South African youth! The selfless sharing of knowledge and opportunity, giving back, passing it forward - these are all core values that we embody at Rosebridge.

Rosebridge offers tuition bursaries to deserving students who are currently in Gr 12 or their first year of tertiary study aiming to study full-time towards an undergraduate degree in fields of relevance to a progressive South Africa. Bursaries are awarded based on merit and financial need for studies at select universities.

Our recipients benefit from gaining practical skills through employee work programmes at selected employers during term breaks. They will be mentored across different disciplines during this time.
