Parental Commitment

The parent/guardian commitment is more than financial.  Parents must become an active part of the team educating a Beacon Scholar at a university offered through the Beacon Partnerships

Parents are expected to:

  • take an involved interest in the Beacon Scholar's progress at university;
  • communicate regularly with the Beacon Mentor;
  • find ways to inspire the Beacon Scholar with confidence, and to ask for help when it is needed;
  • address any and all disciplinary issues concerning the Beacon Scholar;
  • encourage involvement in good citizenship tasks, especially during university holidays;
  • commit to the Beacon philosophy of developing leaders for the future by encouraging the Beacon Scholar to think about how they could make a difference to their country once they have finished their education;
  • positively promote the return of the Beacon Scholar to their home country within one month of completing their undergraduate degree.

Parental Commitment 2

The parents/guardian and Trustees of the Beacon Equity Trust will be required to sign a contract once a Scholarship is awarded, as evidence of their commitment.
