Grey College was founded by Sir George Grey in 1855. This is the oldest school north of the Gariep River, and the third-oldest school in South Africa. Grey College strives to equip every Grey boy with the life skills, knowledge and experience that will enable him to develop into a well-balanced, successful adult.
HOW DO I APPLY FOR A BURSARY?
An applicant must complete and submit the prescribed application form that can either be downloaded from the website of the School or collected from the administrative building of the School.
Bursaries are awarded on a yearly basis for a calendar year and all applications must be submitted on or before the last Friday of August of each calendar year for bursaries to be awarded for the upcoming calendar year.
All applications must be submitted with the School for the attention of Nico Maritz, registrar.
THE BURSARY AMOUNT AND FINANCIAL PROVISIONS OF THE BURSARY
The trustees of the Trust have an absolute and unfettered discretion in the deciding on the total bursary amount to be allocated to a successful applicant and may the bursary amount awarded vary between successful applicants.
No funds made available in terms of the bursary will be paid to the successful applicant directly but will the trustees of the Trust pay the School and related vendors, on behalf the bursary holder, directly.
ARE THE BURSARIES AWARDED REPAYABLE AND / OR SUBJECT TO ANY CONDITIONS?
A successful applicant and his legal guardian/s will be required to enter into a bursary agreement with the trustees of the Trusts (the “Bursary Agreement”). The standard Bursary Agreement can be found on the School’s webpage and all bursaries awarded to successful applicants will be subject to the terms and conditions contained in the Bursary Agreement.
The bursaries in terms of the Bursary Agreement will, inter alia, be subject to the following conditions:
- The bursars will be expected to report on progress to the Bursary Committee biannually.
- Academic performance will be evaluated during these reporting sessions and the Bursary Committee will decide on the continued allocation of the bursary.
- Should a bursar fail any academic year or discontinue his studies at the School for whatever reason, the bursary will not be renewed for the next academic year and any bursary amounts already awarded will be repayable to the Trusts.
