The SITA Air Transport Community Foundation provides financial support to students studying in the IT, engineering and aeronautical schools at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa. To date, eight students – seven postgraduates and one undergraduate – have received grants to assist their education.

In addition, 18 funded student memberships to the new Digital Technology Innovation Zone at the Tshimologong Precinct in Johannesburg provide access for young people to help develop knowledge, gain technology experience and build essential skills.

Tshimologong is a versatile and connected space for Braamfontein’s digital startup scene. Coders, developers, artists, and digital makers can make use of the precinct’s facilities. The memberships are enabling young entrepreneurs (aged 18-35) who have some skills in digital hardware, software development, business development and digital content development to have access to a shared innovation space, meeting rooms, fast internet connectivity, and mentors to increase their knowledge and experience.
