The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls scholarship applications process for 2020 are now open.
Scholarship applications for 2020 opened on 14 January 2019 and will close on 15 February 2019.
Only applications for grade 8 2020 will be accepted.
“All other grades at the Academy have reached their capacity. If you have not heard from the Academy by 15 March 2019 your application has not been successful,” reads the statement.
From the start, Oprah Winfrey knew that university study was essential to the students achieving their professional and personal goals, contributing to society and establishing financial independence.
The academy strives to raise future leaders who are able to navigate a variety of social and cultural contexts, and who will remain committed to the development of South Africa and the African continent.
Students must fall in the criteria below to qualify for a scholarship:
- they are academically talented and have leadership potential
- they are a South African Citizen or permanent resident
- their family or household total income before deductions is less than R10 000 per month
- they are currently in Grade 7
Life at the Academy is not only about academics. Afternoons and weekends are also extremely busy for the girls as they get involved in a number of sporting, social, creative, debating and leadership activities.
Two critical teams in the lives of the girls outside of the classroom are the Residence Life Team and the Wellness Team. These teams work in collaboration with the teachers to facilitate the girls’ growth into thoughtful, responsible and resilient young women leaders.
