Cape Town & Durban, South Africa (since 2015) | Vhukoni Scholarship - Funding for Young South Africans
Oiltanking in Cape Town and Durban Supports Young Students with the Vhukoni Scholarship
Vhukoni’s mission is to overcome poverty and helplessness by providing access to tertiary education for qualifying candidates from impoverished or historically disadvantaged communities who wish to study towards a career in the petroleum and allied services industry. The beneficiaries of this program are selected based on academic merit and financial need.
The program provides full financial aid for the period of study, psycho-social support, experiential learning through a mentorship program, and access to a 12-month learnership or internship at one of the program’s participating partners once recipients have completed their studies.
The Vhukoni Incentive Program is packaged to provide both academic funding and a range of value-added support services. These are designed to ensure that recipients receive not only the best academic training, but also the opportunity to develop the business and social skills they need to be fulfilled and successful members of society. It is committed to producing qualified professionals with the necessary skills, competencies and leadership abilities to make a vital contribution to the South African economy. Oiltanking in Cape Town and in Durban support the program with a donation of around 10,000 euros per year.
