Canon Collins Trust in partnership with Tom Queba Memorial Fund is offering scholarships. The scholarship is for Masters level study in engineering subjects at South African universities. They will award two scholarships per year in the name of Tom Queba.

Moreover, These scholarships are offered in memory of Tom Queba, who was a leader in the George taxi industry. His passion, commitment, and vision for improved public transport, and for the future of the minibus taxi industry in George, have contributed greatly to the achievement of the GO GEORGE bus service. Further, He was tragically killed in 2014, which prompted Pegasys to form the Tom Queba Memorial Fund and establish this scholarship in his memory.
Canon Collins Trust believes that higher education is empowering for individuals and transformative for society. Southern Africa’s development depends on strong leadership in key fields, which is why they have supported over 3,500 individuals through their studies since 1981. Research and knowledge are crucial tools for addressing some of the most pressing issues in contemporary southern African society, therefore they focus their scholarship provision on enabling access to postgraduate and doctoral studies.


  • In 2020, the value of the scholarship package will range from R20,000 to R100,000 depending on student circumstances. Funding will be for up to a maximum of two years. They support both full and part-time study and will consider applications from those who wish to study by distance learning.
  • They also organize an annual conference for current scholars and hold several smaller events throughout the year. Further, Scholarship holders are to participate in these activities and to become part of and contribute to the network.
