Become a Sponsor

Why become a sponsor?

Every year, the UASA engages 30+ students in a unique educational experience to design & build dignified and culturally-influenced homes for resilient families in South Africa.

Sponsors, like you, help open up this experience to as diverse a group as possible. Without sponsorships, this unique educational opportunity would be out of reach for many deserving participants.

How can I participate?

Sponsorships can be done in 2 ways: a direct sponsorship of a student of your choice or a general sponsorship for a student we select. In both scenarios, your donation is tax deductible, in the USA, and goes directly towards the student's program fees.

Deadline

Sponsorships for Spring 2021 must be completed by November 20, 2020
We invite you to submit your Sponsorship Application as soon as possible.
