The HCET offers bursaries to learners in its catchment area who wish to continue their formal education and training beyond Grade 9, and whose parents earn less than R10 000 a month.
Bursaries are granted to students at high schools, technical training colleges and other training institutions as well as universities.
The Trust has taken active steps over a number of years to identify suitable education and training institutions. Bursary holders are supported and mentored. If necessary, the Trust helps them to find their first jobs.
A total of 178 bursaries have been granted over the past 21 years. The success rate has been very high, and 87% of all bursary holders are gainfully employed.
