TAMARA Morolong, a third-year Bachelor of Laws (LLB) student, is one of the beneficiaries of the Boikanyo Solar bursary programme and she is committed to giving back to her community in Douglas.

Morolong is dedicated to mentoring younger learners, emphasising the transformative power of education. By sharing her knowledge and experiences, she aims to pave the way for the academic and professional success of the next generation.

Currently enrolled at the University of the Free State, Morolong is among three recipients of the Boikanyo Solar scholarship programme. These exceptional students have successfully advanced to the next year of their studies, having achieved satisfactory second-semester results.

This notable achievement underscores the commitment and dedication of these students, who continue to excel in their respective fields of study.

Among the bursary beneficiaries who progressed are Meakaila Katz, who is pursuing a Bachelor of Education degree at Sol Plaatje University, and Daverick Julius, who is studying for a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting at the same institution in Kimberley.

Boikanyo Solar’s scholarship programme serves as an excellent opportunity for young people in the community who wish to pursue higher education but have limited access to funding.

The scholarship programme supports local students like Morolong within a 50km radius of the solar facility, who pass their matric examinations and qualify to study for an undergraduate degree or National Diploma at a recognised tertiary institution.

In addition to funding for the recipient’s chosen degree or diploma, the scholarship offers full tuition fees, full residence tuition and meals, book allowance, monthly allowance, and a brand-new laptop.

Morolong said that her goal is to give back to her community by mentoring younger learners about the importance of education and assisting them with applications to universities and colleges and for bursaries.

“To all the young people in the Douglas community, I encourage you to pursue your dreams diligently because education is our only way out,” said Morolong.
