Joshua Nkomo Scholarship Fund

16 February 2018

The Fund is a Pan African Scholarship in honor of one of our country's founding fathers, Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo. Each year, the scholarship sponsors hundreds of the country's brightest high school and tertiary students, irrespective of social standing or race.

The JNSF, which was launched in 2005, and issued its first scholarships in 2006, is administered through a registered independent trust that is governed by a board of trustees who are independent of Econet and its Management. Administratively, the JNSF is run by a general manager appointed by the trustees. Each year, the fund awards hundreds of scholarships to high school and college students who will be expected to have a strong community spirit and maintain the highest academic as well as personal/moral standards in their community.

Apart from providing tuition, a significant part of the programme involves the grooming of beneficiaries into leaders. The Joshua Nkomo Scholarship Fund continues with its valuable work in the provision of funding to the nation’s most gifted students.
