The Astro Scholarship Award 2015
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.
