About Scholarship

The Yossi Schiff Memorial Scholarship Fund is designed to promote international understanding and offer an educational opportunity through scholarships to foreign graduate students (from developing countries) in need.

The Scholarship Fund is a fitting tribute to a young man who cared deeply for the world around him and tried to foster values of mutual respect between people, cultures and nations. Yossi Schiff received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in 2005. Born in Israel and proud of his Jewish heritage, Yossi was an enthusiastic traveler who enjoyed his sojourns in Africa and Southeast Asia.

Theerefore students with special needs are not catered for in classes due to lack of teachers who specialises in this area. I am looking forward to hear from you.
