Welcome to
The Kay Mason Foundation

We offer high school scholarships to deserving
students, with leadership potential, who do not
have the means to attend a school​ where
they will flourish.
Your kindness can help them start a new life.


The following application form is for high school placements in 2021.
The application process opens 2 April 2019 and closes on 31 July 2019 at 15:00.
Successful Gr 6 applicants will be informed and will have to complete an academic assessment and individual interviews before final selection for the Junior Programme in 2020.
Once your child has been accepted into the Junior Programme of 2020, your child will have to commit to attend a year-long programme of weekend classes and submitting important documentation throughout the year, which forms part of the selection process.
