This is a named award under the Canon Collins Scholarships for Postgraduate study in South Africa. Ros and Terry were inspirational London educationalists. Since 2001 friends and family have raised funds in their memory and we have awarded scholarships in their name, especially for study in education, health, humanities and the arts. To date more than 75 people have benefited from these scholarships. Roughly 5 awards are made each year.

What we offer
In 2016 most awards will be valued at R65,000 for each year of study at Masters and PhD level. In exceptional cases we may offer up to R100,000 per year. We support both full and part-time study and will consider applications from those who wish to study by distance learning.
We also organise an annual conference for current scholars, and hold several smaller events throughout the year. Scholarship holders are expected to participate in these activities and to become part of and contribute to our network.
