In honour of International Day of the Girl Child today, The Beast Foundation have partnered with leading private higher education and training institution eta, to give away two bursaries valued at R393,000. Applications open today, 11 October 2021, to all young women interested in pursuing a career in sports, are currently in Matric (or have completed Matric) and meet the qualifying criteria for course entry.
Participants can access the entry form on WhatsApp number: +27(0)66-476-0739 and submit completed applications via email:firstname.lastname@example.org, clearly stating the reference number TBF/ETAX2F2021 on the subject line. Submissions close on the 11 November 2021 and successful applicants will start their studies in 2022.
“We approached The Beast Foundation because our organisations have a shared vision to prioritize and making education accessible to everyone. Our mandate as a school is to offer educational services and play our part as a good corporate citizen invested in the development of sport. We encourage young women all over South Africa to take full advantage of this opportunity to use our state-of-the-art facilities while obtaining a qualification that will give them unparallel experience into the world of sports and unlock key opportunities for their futures,” says Kavish Gajoo, Regional Director, eta Pretoria Campus.
eta specialises in premium sports education that meets the ever-changing demands of the sports, wellness and fitness industry. The bursaries cover registration and tuition fees for any 3-year undergraduate qualifications offered by the college. These include: a Bachelors Degree of Management in Sports and Leisure and a Diploma in Sport and Recreation Management to mention a few. Conveniently; the offer to study can be taken up at any of the 10 eta campuses nationwide.
Founder of The Beast Foundation, Tendai “Beast” Mtawarira, says this partnership with eta was a no brainer as it affirms the Foundations commitment to providing equal educational opportunities to young people across Africa. He notes that it is a small step in the right direction to curbing the gender inequality gap that exists within the sports industry. “Though great strides have been made to date, women are still often marginalised and not given equal opportunities in sport. We are resolute in our support for equality and women empowerment”.
“Thank you to eta for spearheading this great initiative and for your dedication to levelling the playing field for the future of women in sport. Education is a catalyst for positive change and for The Beast Foundation to be able to offer young people an opportunity to study at an accredited institution like eta, is precisely why we exist. We would like to wish all the bursary applicants the best of luck,” concludes Mtawarira.
