NOTE: EPILEPSY SA EDUCATION TRUST APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR 2023
The Epilepsy South Africa Educational Trust was founded in December 1998 with a clear mission. The founding Trustees, including Kathryn Pahl, Amelia Jones, Donald Campbell, Mzolisi Toni, Vusi Mahlasela, and Jocelyne Kane-Berman, shared a vision and diligently reviewed numerous applications from across South Africa.
The primary purpose of the Trust is to offer financial assistance to promising and gifted students who have epilepsy and are pursuing tertiary education. While the Trust can provide only partial bursaries, its support has been significantly impacting the lives of students for nearly two decades, making a profound and positive difference.
