At Curro, we have four different school scholarship options. As part of our commitment to ensuring affordable school fees to our learners without compromising our academic standards, we have partnered with three organisations to help learners gain a high-quality education.


Ruta Sechaba Foundation scholarship 

The Ruta Sechaba Foundation provides school scholarships, bursaries and awards to qualifying learners at Curro and Curro-managed schools. 

The foundation was established in 2016 with the PSG Group BEE Education Trust as the initial donor. The PSG Group BEE Education Trust was founded by the PSG Group in 2006 with the aim of providing monitored financial support for education purposes to Black South African citizens. The PSG Group BEE Education Trust identified the Ruta Sechaba Foundation, along with Curro as its key partner in education, to assist in achieving this objective. 

Due to limited resources, the fund will not be considering any new applications for the 2022 academic year. In the meantime, enquiries regarding the renewal of existing scholarships can be sent to
