About Us

Who We Are

Founded in 2015, Thrive aims to provide opportunities to young South Africans who have a desire to further their studies but who cannot afford to do so. Following an application process, successful students are provided with financial support calculated on a needs and affordability basis. In addition, Thrive students may, upon request, be allocated a mentor who is positioned to provide academic and/or spiritual support.

Thrive aims to facilitate both the acquisition of industry knowledge and the soft skills required to succeed in a particular industry. Once a student has graduated, s/he is required to give back to Thrive either through financial contributions or by mentoring younger students.

Consideration of applications

  • Thrive will consider all applications received but reserves the right to make selections according to its own pre-set criteria.
  • Thrive may ask for an interview with the applicant or his/her family before making a decision.
  • An applicant may not request Thrive to provide reasons for unsuccessful applications.
  • Successful applicants undertake to the best of their ability to use the skills and knowledge attained during tertiary studies to contribute towards building a better South Africa.

Criteria for applicants

  • South African and 18 years or older.
  • Have been accepted to tertiary studies at an accredited institution and need financial assistance.
  • Undertake to ‘give back’ in some way to Thrive following their studies.

Available funding

  • Funding can be limited to tuition fees but can extend to cover costs of textbooks, transport, registration, and living expenses, depending on applicants’ needs and Thrive’s ability to meet them.
  • Tuition and registration fees will be paid by Thrive directly to the applicable tertiary institution; transport, textbook and living costs will be paid directly to the applicant upon presentation of relevant invoice(s).
