George Bizos Saheti Scholarship & Bursary Fund

“He who partakes in Hellenic learning is an Hellene” –  Isocrates

“Our doors should be open to secondary school learners of excellence who would otherwise be unable to afford a world class Hellenic education.” – George Bizos

Since its inception in 2003, the primary aim of the GBSSBF, as set out by Bizos himself, is to create opportunities for promising young South African minds, with limited financial means, to receive a world class Hellenic education at Saheti School. By offering promising learners opportunities in secondary education, Bizos believed, we could build solid foundations for the future.
