Yolanda Mni has been notified of her selection to receive the Allan Gray Fellowship and Scholarship bursary. It consists of an Entrepreneurial and Personal Development Programme, as part of a full undergraduate university scholarship. The Fellowship Programme runs throughout the year, alongside tertiary studies and includes seminars, guest speakers, experiential learning activities and project based deliverables.

The Fellowship also includes Mentoring both from individually assigned Foundation employed staff and a Mentor with specific industry experience, that will assist the Candidate Fellow in their development.

The Candidate Fellow’s university studies are covered by a full undergraduate scholarship that includes tuition, university residence and a book allowance as well as a monthly stipend. This support is to ensure that the Candidate Fellow is able to purely focus on their academics and entrepreneurial development. For top performing Candidate Fellows, potential future scholarships are available for postgraduate studies.
