Eastern Cape Bursary Fund

Eastern Cape Bursary Fund

Supporting Eastern Cape Families

Located in the heart of the Eastern Cape, DSG and St Andrew’s has a history of a distinctive Eastern Cape flavour, which are we very proud of. Approximately 40% of our pupils are from the Eastern Cape and many of them come from a long line of proud farming stock for whom College and DSG are as much a part of their DNA as is farming. It is this sentiment that drove the rationale for creating a Bursary Fund with a wonderful Eastern Cape flavour.

The Eastern Cape Bursary Fund is established exclusively to raise funds to assist girls and boys from the Eastern Cape to attend DSG and St Andrew’s College.

How does this fund work?

By raising weaner calves at marginal cost on the farms of participating farmers (under the Inkunzi Bursary Programme), the initial funding is able to be grown at a good return. A portion of the funding will be used to purchase additional cattle to grow the programme, while the majority of the funds will be disbursed to The Eastern Cape Bursary Funds of DSG and St Andrew’s College. The funds will be used to support children from the Eastern Cape farming community, as identified by the schools’ respective bursary committees. Preference is given to children of DSG Old Girls and Old Andreans.

How can you support the programme?
  • Make a donation to The Eastern Cape Bursary Fund through the DSG’s Bursary and Scholarships Programme; or
  • Make a donation to the Inkunzi Bursary Programme (independent operation) to support the running costs of the weaner programme. Please contact the DSG Foundation Office foundation@dsgschool.com or contact 046 603 4300 for more details.
  • The Eastern Cape farming community is also encouraged to run Inkunzi weaners as part of their herd.

Please note that only donations made to The Eastern Cape Bursary Fund will qualify for a Section 18A tax certificate issued by DSG.


No Admission fee is charged. We do recommend that you return the form as soon as possible. An Entrance Deposit is requested once the pupil has been accepted the year prior to entry.
