International Scholarships of Honor - South Africa

With the generous support, assistance, and dedication of Gloria and Paul Zimmerman of Green Bay, the Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation awarded its first South Africa Scholarship of Honor in July, 2007.  While the Zimmermans were traveling in the area, they talked with many individuals and organizations, to help establish this annual scholarship. We are honored and proud to extend our International Scholarship of Honor program to South Africa.

Based on information provided by the People to People International Organization, the LEAP Science and Maths School in Cape Town was selected to coordinate the selection process for scholarships at its school.
