2021 A-level Scholarship Programme

Help a child achieve their dreams by donating to Makomborero

The Deadline is now closed for the applications for the 2021 Intake of the Makomborero Scholarship Programme.

 

The Scholarships

Makomborero Zimbabwe seeks to identify suitable candidates capable of A-Level entrance. In 2021 we will be offering up to eight full internal scholarships to study A-levels at an excellent Harare-based private school and 10 external scholarships at local A-Level schools and thus provide the chosen students with the resources to achieve their goals where they may have fallen short through financial hardship and/or not having access to well-resourced A-level facilities in their current schools. As part of the scholarship scheme the students will be expected to assist with the on-going community work in local Government schools.

Schools offering scholarships are Hellenic Academy, St George’s College and Gateway High School.

The Internal Scholarship will include:

  • Weekly accommodation, meals and mentorship
  • Examination fees
  • School uniform requirements
  • All tuition fees and stationery

 

The External Scholarship will include:

  • Mentorship
  • Examination fees
  • Contribution to School uniform costs
  • All tuition fees and stationery
Scholarship Eligibility
  • The scholarship scheme is designed to recruit the most able O-Level student. Potential candidates must either already have attained (or be predicted) a number of A grades at O-level.
  • The final selection process will be completed by January 2021 and will be before the actual O-level results have been published.
  • From time to time, the selection committee may decide to award a number of scholarships that fall outside of the strict academic requirements.
  • Makomborero welcomes any application from government school students that feel he/she can clearly demonstrate the passion and potential to achieve top grades in their chosen A-level subjects.
Selection Process
  • All applications must be received by the date stated on the application forms. (October)
  • Each application will be carefully considered and an initial shortlist drawn up. (November)
  • Shortlisted candidates will be called for an interview and scholarship testing. (December and January, depending on the restrictions of Covid-19)
  • The final selection process will be completed before the O-level results have been published, but in some cases we may wait for the results before informing the students who have been awarded scholarships.

Please leave either your completed application form with your Head Teacher or post to Makomborero Zimbabwe, P.O. Box MP753, Mt Pleasant, Harare or send a text message to 0774 816 742 to arrange a drop off at Mount Pleasant Fashions (It’s a shop at Bond Street shops in Mt Pleasant along the Chase) or email to admin@makomborero.info.

The Deadline for completed applications is now closed. 

Once we have drawn up an initial short list we will contact you if you have been selected for interview/scholarship testing.  If you do not hear from us by 8th January 2021 please assume your application has been unsuccessful.
