The Canon Collins Trust Alumni Network is an extraordinary group of leaders from across southern Africa.

Why join?

With more than 3,500 alumni from over 35 years of scholarship programmes, the Canon Collins Alumni Network includes hundreds of outstanding lawyers, educators, scientists, business leaders, health-care providers, engineers, and executives of non-profit organisations who are now leading change in their communities and the wider region.

The Network offers a way for alumni to connect across professional and geographic spaces, further their commitment to social justice and 'give back' to the next generation of scholars.

Re-connect with the Network today to expand your personal and professional networks, share your story and achievements, access funding opportunities and participate in upcoming alumni events.
