Allan Gray Orbis Fellowship Programme


The Fellowship is the next step in your education, and your education is more than just a degree – it’s 360 degrees of entrepreneurial training. It’s the ability to see the complete picture, to use your voice to fill gaps. It’s a directive to do business that’s inclusive, innovative and downright inspirational. Your degree is an open-ended invitation to redesign the world – and it’s got your name on it.

The aim of the Fellowship Programme is to develop Southern Africa’s future, high-impact responsible entrepreneurs. This programme is intended to help university students prepare for life as a high-impact, responsible entrepreneur.

In addition to financial and academic support, each candidate is allocated a Personal Development Officer, helping them get to grips with the transition into a new environment; an Entrepreneurial Leadership Officer, who probes them to flex their entrepreneurial muscles; as well as an industry mentor, who deepens their understanding of entrepreneurial traits and concepts in the working world.
