Our Scholarship Partners are the cornerstone of the programme.
The Scholarship Partner partners with a Scholar, by providing financial assistance towards their tertiary fees, and also by providing them with part-time work for the four year duration of the scholarship. If you wish to find out more information about becoming a scholarship partner please contact: Amanda Gilchrist / firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile 027 550 7777

First Foundation simply could not exist without the generosity and support of funders. If you are interested in looking at ways you could support the work of First Foundation whether through private funding, donations or other funding mechanisms then please contact email@example.com.
Each year we have a small percentage of students that are offered scholarships through private donors/funders or other means. These students may not have work experience as part of their scholarship, so if you are able to offer a student 4-5 weeks per year paid work experience, then we would love to hear from you. Most of our students work at the end of the year or over the summer period, however this is flexible depending on the student and their study timetable.
First Foundation are privileged to partner with the following organisations as we work in alignment to a mutually beneficial way for the promotion of their respective visions and for each organisation to, non-financially, support the strategic aims of the other. A number of First Foundation alumni have also been involved or supported the organisations below.View Capability Partners
