The Canon Collins Thekgo Bursary is a non-profit initiative established in 2007 by a group of professionals keen to promote access to higher education. It is funded by personal contributions from individuals, and is jointly run by the Canon Collins office in the UK and a committee of supporters, on a voluntary basis.


The bursary is targeted at students whose degree certificates/academic records have been withheld due to outstanding debt owed to the university, after completion of undergraduate/Honors studies. The initiative was set up in response to the troubling South African reality that students lose opportunities for employment or further studies due to withheld academic records, owing to outstanding debt.


For 2021, we have two R6000 bursaries for eligible applicants who have completed undergraduate/Hons studies at institutions in Limpopo, Northern Cape and Eastern Cape provinces.


Fields of study / disciplines:

  • Arts (Visual/Fine/Digital Arts, History of Art, Drama/Performance, Film,TV, Music)
  • Languages and Literature

  • For 2021, only students who have completed their undergraduate/Honours studies at a public University in Limpopo, Northern Cape and Eastern Cape Provinces, in the above mentioned disciplines are eligible.
  • No MA or PhD programmes will be considered
  • You must have missed at least one graduation due to outstanding debt.
