Dear Friends,

October is perhaps the most crucial month in the calendar for the Canon Collins Trust, as our scholarships team conducted interviews for the 2019 scholars. Scholars have now been provisionally selected and we really look forward to showcasing the next generation of Canon Collins change makers over the coming months!

Applications for several scholarships open this month, so don't miss out on these opportunities and spread widely with your own networks. 

The Trust is also excited to confirm that the Canon Collins Alumni Network's Social Enterprise Forum will take place on 17 November at Athol Towers in Sandton, Johannesburg. If you have started or intend to start a social enterprise, please do RSVP here to meet like minded people and gain more knowledge!  
The Canon Collins Trust and our partner, Equal Education, are hosting a joint event at St Paul's Cathedral in London to celebrate the educational journeys travelled over the course of our history and St Pauls' role in supporting these journeys. The event is fast approaching on 12th November and we are looking forward to seeing many of you there! If you find you can no longer attend, please do inform us. To find out more about the event, click here.

This month we also continued with our highly successful series of evenings of information sharing on scholarships in Harare, Zimbabwe. To read more about the event, please click here, and to find out more broadly about scholarship opportunities in Zimbabwe. A booklet of Scholarship Opportunities for Zimbabweans was distributed and is now available online here. Please do share. 

Partnerships are also a vital aspect of the Trust's work in southern Africa. Through our partnerships, the Trust is able to support grassroots organisations to influence change in education and social justice in the region, and and we are excited to share several key developments from October. 

Thanks once again for your continued support, 

Katie Connan
