What we do
We provide Scholarships!
Scholarships are offered to prevent gifted young people dropping out of education before ĎAí Level when they canít afford to pay the school fees for Sixth Form. Scholarships are offered at six nominated low-fee non-government boarding schools, throughout Zimbabwe.
Two co-ordinators build relationships with the schools and with students. Through getting to know students and teachers personally, trustees can be confident in the Budiriro Trust being caring and effective on the ground.
The academic year in Zimbabwe runs from January to December. Before the 31st March each year, head teachers submit applications for lower sixth scholarships, having selected nominees of higher education potential on the basis of merit and need.
The selection criteria are as follows:
Lower 6th students are always allocated an upper 6th scholarship assuming they have passed their exams, made satisfactory progress and returned to school.
