About KISCH IP Scholarship Programme 2022
Higher education is the most significant investment a country can make to build its future. It is hard to provide education to all underprivileged young people in a developing country.
As a first step in making a difference, KISCH IP took the initiative of a scholarship programme for young students who hold a technical degree. The company offers scholarships to help students with financial resources and provide opportunities to pursue higher studies. Scholarships minimize the odds of dropouts by reducing financial concerns and helping students to pursue a promising future.
The introduction of this scholarship programme intends to assist technical students who want to study law and get familiarised with Intellectual Property. The scholarship will cover all the prescribed books and tuition fees for a semester or a year in a law school with job opportunities. It will help students to become patent attorneys who are from disadvantaged backgrounds in South Africa.
