Our scholarship programme gives previously disadvantaged students the opportunity to study law and enter the field of intellectual property. It focuses on students who already have technical degrees and are interested in studying further to qualify as Patent Attorneys.

Why this specific focus? It is an unfortunate reality that very few individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds currently practise as patent attorneys in South Africa – and this is a situation we would like to remedy. Please fill out the form on the right hand side.
