The General Botha Old Boys’ Association Bursary Fund promotes maritime education and training. We do this via raising
funds to provide financial assistance to formerly disadvantaged school going students at Lawhill Maritime Centre at Simon’s Town School. In addition, Tertiary Bursaries for Maritime Studies are awarded to selected students. An ongoing Mentorship and Outreach program, in partnership with various organisations and supported by Captains of Industry from school through to employment, is essential to the success of students who are part the program.
