Among the seven deserving Ekurhuleni youngsters who have been given all-expenses-paid scholarships, valued at R170 000 each, by the Peermont Education Trust (PET) this year, is Tembisa’s Khomotso Mothobeki.
After a stringent selection and interview process, Mothobeki received his official scholarship letter at an induction function at Emperors Palace on January 25.
He can now look forward to making his dreams of obtaining a tertiary education a reality.
Mothobeki, who matriculated from Masiqhakaze Secondary School in Emfihlweni Section with three distinctions, in mathematics, life science and physical sciences, is now heading to the University of Johannesburg to start his nursing studies.
Apart from having his tuition and accommodation expenses covered, getting his books and a laptop, the trust also provides a comprehensive mentorship programme for scholarship recipients to enable them to cope and develop new skills during their time at university.
