The Arup Education Trust is a public benefit organisation (PBO) incorporated in South Africa and welcomes partners and donors who are committed to assisting students with potential to realise their dreams in spite of their circumstances. 

The commitment required is more than just financial; it is a combination of guidance and experiential input; of a deep understanding of the nature of industry's requirements in both the built environment and other major industries in the years to come; and the belief in the future of South Africa's youth.
