Education is a national priority in South Africa. It is the driving force for the future of our country. It has the power to transform lives, eradicate poverty and shape the leaders of tomorrow.
The vision of the Arup Education Trust (AET) is to enhance the quality of lives of disadvantaged youths through education and skills development with emphasis on the girl child. The AET was established in 2010 and owns 30% of Arup (Pty) Ltd. It sponsors undergraduate students pursuing degrees in all aspects of the built environment.
The mission of the AET is to provide an enabling environment that allows the students to tap into their full potential. We adopt a holistic approach that marries funding with guidance and mentorship, and empowers our students with skills and knowledge; enabling their development as successful, empowered future leaders.
