Pietermaritzburg’s Alexandra High School grade 12 pupil, Bilinge Magomba will soon be jetting off to the U.S. after he was awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship.

This allows him to study in the USA for two years as part of the fully funded programme for foreign students and artists.

The programme aims to identify academically qualified and motivated pupils who are highly competitive for full financial aid but do not have the means to apply to the U.S.. This means that pupils can apply to universities in the U.S. while avoiding the hassles of payments and costs that come along with it.
