Eligible Families

Families must have income under R10 000 / month BEFORE deductions to be eligible.  We do not consider debt or number of dependents in this initial application.  We do not ever take families with income over R10 000.  Proof of income is not required at the initial stage however it is required later.  Income from both biological parents is considered unless a parent is unknown or deceased.  Divorced parents must both provide proof of income.  Any other adults contributing to household expenses must also provide proof of income.

Learners must have a code 6 or 7 for their English (Home Language or First Additional) and Maths.  The Term 2, Grade 6 report and learner’s birth certificate should accompany the Initial Application.  Application forms are available here.   Application forms can also be requested from Kath Morse: applysaili@gmail.com Read more

SAILI Scholarships CLOSED

What can I do if I missed the scholarships deadline?
SAILI only receives scholarship applications during September of the year your child is in Grade 6.  We don’t ever make any exceptions.  If you missed our applications process you can try one of the other scholarship organsiations in Cape Town.  There are no scholarship organisations that take applications for high school scholarships after April of the year your child is in Grade 7.  This is because most high schools have closed for applications by then.
