Jakes Gerwel Fellowship Programme 2022 for young South Africans

Jakes Gerwel Fellowship is a full university scholarship that provides extensive mentoring and leadership development for top learners with a passion for teaching and education. At the heart of what we do is nurturing expert teachers who embrace innovation and can lead the kind of change that our educational sector so desperately requires. In short, we want to make the strongest possible case and provide the greatest possible support for our best students to become our best teachers.

Founded in 2017, Jakes Gerwel Fellowship is fully funded by Allan Gray Orbis Foundation Endowment Teaching Initiative.

The beneficiaries benefit from a world-class Fellowship program that provides access to personal coaches, mentors, and expert teachers, along with elective activities. Graduates who have completed their undergraduate degrees, qualify as high school teachers through a PGCE and then enter a 2-year induction phase as they are placed in partner schools as newly qualified teachers. Ongoing support and development will continue to be offered through communities of practice.

Jakes Gerwel Fellowship is named to honour the high impact legacy of Professor Jakes Gerwel, a teacher and educational leader who was one of President Mandela’s closest confidants.


  • The entry point into the Jakes Gerwel Fellowship is either as a student in the final year of undergraduate studies to be part of the PGCE intake.
