About the Scholarship Fund

The Chartered Accountants Students Society (CASS), in collaboration with the Institute of Chartered Accountants Zimbabwe (ICAZ), launched the ICAZ CASS Scholarship Trust Fund in 2015 (“the Fund”) to prioritise youth education as a sustainable and impactful way of improving society. The Trust was borne out of a realisation that the cost of education has continually increased, taking with it the hopes and dreams of an academically gifted but economically disadvantaged student population.

Objectives of the Trust:

The Trust stands guided by the following objectives:

  • To offer educational assistance to academically gifted persons from disadvantaged backgrounds wishing to pursue careers as Chartered Accountants in Zimbabwe;
  • To provide financial support for the less privileged students;
  • To groom, mentor and provide life skills to beneficiaries;
  • To promote the maintenance of any school or faculty providing education in relation to the business of ICAZ and CASS;
  • To provide valuable life skills information which children facing complex challenges need such as education, mentorship and career guidance in order for them to be able to make informed life decisions;
  • To nurture scholarship life beneficiaries to have a heart for the community that will help them to willingly make contributions to the Trust when they have successfully completed their training;
  • To create awareness of the Chartered Accountancy profession to prospective students and the general public;
  • To fund and set up libraries across the country with a bias on accounting related books;
  • To generally promote the education of persons studying to become Chartered Accountants in Zimbabwe; and
  • Generally to do or undertake all or any such other acts, matters or things and charitable activities as are necessary for the attainment of the Trust’s objectives.
