The Astro Scholarship Award

Dreaming big? The spotlight beckons.

Education can transform and inspire people to shape a greater future for themselves, their families, their community and ultimately our country. It is with this firm belief that we established the Astro Scholarship Award for high-achieving students looking to pursue their pre-university, undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

The award is available for pre-university and undergraduate studies at universities both locally and abroad, where our scholars will be assisted in terms of tuition fees, air travel (beginning and end of course) as well as their living allowance throughout the term of their study. The award is also offered for postgraduate studies at renowned institutions of learning.

Various opportunities for learning and internships will be available during semester breaks and scholars will serve a bond with Astro for a period of between 4-6 years.

What our Scholars say...

The Astro Scholarship has enabled me to make a living out of doing what I love. With the opportunities I was given after returning from university, I could explore a variety of options from within the Astro Group, as well as be part of an incredible network of other accomplished scholars that are paving the way ahead of me.

Astro has provided me the opportunity and support to pursue my dreams in the web and creative industries. From my tertiary education, all the way to kick starting my career, the Astro Scholarship has served as a stepping stone into the world. I've been given the opportunity to exercise my creativity and make my own decisions in projects, and hopefully ultimately see them work and make a difference in the real world.

I count myself very fortunate to be one of the few to be given a scholarship to further my studies abroad. While studying and living in London, I gained invaluable experiences and opportunities that have molded me in a positive way, personally and professionally. I’m able to fully apply my skills and experience to my current job at Astro where a lot of what I gained during my education has come in handy.
