J. Nevis Bursary

One of the first projects to be launched by the Blue Collar Foundation was the J. Nevis Bursary which will contribute towards the funding of an underprivileged high school student(s) seeking tertiary education, within the Humanities field at a Western Cape institution.

This will be a project that will continue to be a focus of the Blue Collar Foundation. Bursary applications for the academic year of 2018 are currently available.

The closing date for applications will be on Friday, 19 January 2018.
