Since 2012 the Bursary Fund has held an annual Golf Day at Rondebosch Golf Club.
This fantastically organised event has over the years become a major feature of the local maritime industry’s brand marketing and social programs. The event is always attended by a group of LMC students, providing an opportunity for participants to meet with the beneficiaries of their contributions, and to hear how their generosity is transforming young lives. In addition, the students get first-hand insight into the benevolence that creates and sustains their life-changing opportunities. The golf day is an essential source of support for the fund, an opportunity for networking and great fun for the participants.



When sponsoring a student, corporates or individuals receive termly reports from the student’s mentor about their academic and general progress and become a partner in their journey and ongoing upliftment. Tertiary Sponsors receive similar reports and are thus able to evaluate students for possible employment as a Cadet onboard their ships.

The Bursary Fund has formed valuable and trustworthy partnerships with our funders some of whom have been part of the growth of the
Bursary Fund since its inception.
