Wynberg Boys' High School: Jacques Kallis Scholarship

As you have probably seen on TV, Jacques Kallis has made an annual scholarship available to Wynberg Boys’ High School.

This is an extremely prestigious scholarship which covers tuition, hostel fees, tours and equipment. It is a tribute to the character of Jacques that he has been willing to put something so tangible back into his old school.

The selection process is initially done by the school who present a short list of three candidates to the Jacques Kallis Trustees. The final selection is up to them.

The criteria for selection is as follows:

  • Proven ability as a cricketer
  • Must love cricket
  • Ability to contribute to school and community in other fields
  • Ability to hold own academically
  • Positive outlook
  • Sound behaviour

Applications must include:

  • An application form
  • Latest academic report
  • Letter of recommendation from the school
  • Letter of support from parents
  • Handwritten letter from the applicant stating why he should be awarded the scholarship

Please note that the top three candidates will be required to attend an interview with the trustees.

Good luck in your application.

Yours sincerely
