CREATIVES • INNOVATORS • ENTREPRENEURS
Having a business is not a prerequisite, but a demonstrated interest in redemptive entrepreneurship is important.
Serious about faith and vocational excellence, humble and teachable, leadership qualities.
We encourage candidates to be entrepreneurial to help cover fees: creative crowd-funding, proposals to universities, companies or societies, pitches to mentors or friends, and even creating small businesses.
Through the generous support of financial partners, we’re able to provide a partial scholarship to help students attend the Triga Academy. There are two types of scholarships:
You can apply for an R750 subsidy towards your registration fee.
A travel scholarship of R1,000 is available to candidates travelling from other provinces and requiring financial support.
A payment plan that allows you to pay the registration fee at R750 per month over two months is available.
