An overview of what being a Funder on Studentbox entails

Easily search, find students with potential

On Studentbox you’ll find a range of students, from top peforming, to creatives, crafters; all looking into furthering their education in their fields of choice.

  • Start by registering as a Funder. Tell us about your preffered sector and criteria required for funding.
  • Studentbox analyzes your criteria. Our system then highlights students based on the preffered sector and criteria score, helping you find matches suited for funding.
  • We send you a shortlist of likely candidates. You can also search the site for students and add them on your watchlist. Students can view your profile as well.

We have several measures in place to ensure Studentbox is a fair and reliable system. We use multiple means to verify that students are who they say they are.

We partnered with Umalusi, the Council for Quality Assurance in General and Further Education and Training; to make sure before funding, the students met the criteria set by the funder.

Ultimately it is the students responsibility to make sure all information they provide on their profiles is as truthful as they can to strengthen their chances for funding.

Yes, with Platinum Funder package we will handpick pre-vetted students to meet your funding criteria.

Fund the student

Add students to watchlist, review their term performance and ultimately choose who to fund.

  • Browse profiles. Narrow your search using filters; sector, province, subject marks.
  • Review students on watchlist. Evaluate and track student performance during the course of the year.
  • Send Messages. Ask students questions, explain your criteria, determine who's the best fit and finally award funds.

You can evaluate students by reviewing their Studentbox profile. Each student in our system has an Studentbox profile. It can include academic performance, motivational letter, sector chosen, geo-location, school and much more.  

After registration, you will be redirected to your profile. There is a section where you input your funding criteria and the amount, you will then follow the checkout process and the money is then deposited into an escrow account.

Escrow is a third party that holds and regulates payment of the funds required for two parties involved in a given transaction. In this case, funds will be intact until end of year when the chosen student meets the criteria set by the funder; once funder approves that the criteria is met; funds are released to that students’ university/college account.
