Online classified Gumtree.co.za will be giving a few lucky students a helping hand with their 2016 studies through the Gumtree School Fund. One lucky student will receive R10,000 while two others will receive R5,000.
“So many students use Gumtree – for part-time jobs, or to buy and sell their stuff to assist with costs like textbooks and tuition,” says Gumtree Head of Marketing, Claire Cobbledick. “We wanted to show our thanks and lend a helping hand to the many enterprising young South Africans who have given us their support.”
Any student aged 18 and older who is currently furthering their education or enrolled for the 2016 year is eligible and can apply online. “It doesn’t matter which college you are or intend to attend – anyone can apply.”
Luckily winners will be selected at random. Cobbledick says that entries are streaming in fast. “We’re definitely pleased with the results and encourage students to get their entries ready as soon as possible.”
