A civil initiative to fight poverty in South Africa by empowering able but financially needy
young people with opportunities for further education.
Studietrust is an independent national bursary agency based on Christian principles. We have a single focus: the talented but financially needy young person who, in the hope of a better future, urgently wants to continue studying.
A VENTURE OF HOPE... South Africa has become a symbol of hope to many in the African continent as well as the rest of the world. Studietrust assists disadvantaged young South Africans to press on in hope. We warmly invite you to acquaint yourself with our work and to consider joining us in this venture of hope.
Studietrust is a non-profit bursary organisation that was founded on 13 June 1974. The organisation has one single focus: the talented but financially needy young person who, in the hope of a better future, is studying towards a tertiary or further qualification. Studietrust works with a select number of young people who are determined to become winners and assists them to empower themselves through further education and training in the struggle against poverty, ignorance and exploitation. In celebration of 40 years of work, this year, Studietrust, its alumni and partners are organizing a conference to be held on 2 October 2014.
The theme of the conference is, ‘#Hustling to success: Enabling active citizenship through innovative professional development in education’.
It is graduation time at most South African institutions of higher learning and many a Studietrust bursary beneficiary will over the next few weeks don the gown to receive that degree or diploma and celebrate the hard work and determination of the past few years.

Prof Christof Heyns, United Nations Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or
arbitrary executions, and Professor of Human Rights Law, Co-director of the Institute for International and Comparative Law in Africa at the University of Pretoria and former Studietrust trustee, recently spoke at a graduation ceremony at Wits University. With his permission we publish his thought-provoking speech, in the hope that our graduates all over South Africa will be inspired by his words while they celebrate their achievements and at the same time recommit themselves to the task at hand, here in South Africa, and in the world.
