The Valenture Institute has just launched a national scholarship program for the children of our country’s *health care providers to offer a full year of education in these uncertain times.

South Africa (8 April 2020) – While the world heads into nationwide lockdowns to curb the spread of the current global pandemic, health care providers across the globe, and more specifically in South Africa, heed the call of duty to attend to the sick and infected.

While they’re at the frontline of the pandemic, their families continue to look for normality and try to ensure continuity in the chaos, their children battle to keep up their education as schools closed indefinitely.

The Valenture Institute, a global online high school, with a revolutionary online education platform, has heeded the call to support our nation’s Doctors, Specialists and Nurses by launching a unique scholarship program for their children to ensure their sacrifice to those in need is not taken for granted. The scholarship program will look to offer a 1 year, tuition-free high school cohort for a learner worth at least R60,000 depending on the number of subjects and duration. The program will allow a learner to join the June 2020 intake and continue to learn while at home through a full service online high school, using a combination of technology, high-touch human support and social engagement.

“Our country’s health care providers are on the frontline of this pandemic, and at Valenture Institute, we feel it’s our responsibility to support those who are selflessly supporting the rest of us,” says Rob Paddock, CEO & Founder of Valenture Institute.

The ‘Valenture Institute Healthcare Scholarship Program’ will accept learner admissions from Monday, 6th April 2020, and licensed health care providers can submit their child’s online application via the dedicated email address, admissions@valentureinstitute.com, with the subject line: ‘Healthcare Scholarship Program’, and will be required to submit supporting documents to be vetted according to admission criteria and the learners assessed by the Institute’s admissions team.

The following will need to be sent over email as the application:

  • A copy of the learner applicant’s latest school report

  • The applicant’s birth certificate OR Identity Document OR passport

  • The Health care provider’s active HPCSA registration number

*Health care providers: defined as people “providing health services in terms of any law”, including the Allied Health Professions Act 63 of 1982, the Health Professions Act 56 of 1974, the Nursing Act 50 of 1978, the Pharmacy Act 53 of 1974, and the Dental Technicians Act 19 of 1979. This means doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and medical specialists.
