Red Box

The services to top achievers are packaged into one innovative and unique UFS ‘Kovsie2B product’, called the Red Box Society. It is an exclusive society to which just 60 top achievers in the country are invited to belong. The school marketers use the Rector’s voucher to the value of R10 000 to encourage a deserving and top-achieving Grade 12 learner with an AP of at least 40, to study at the UFS.

These numbered vouchers are given out during school visits throughout SA. We are looking for bright-eyed learners with the potential to contribute to the generation of new knowledge, achieving the graduate attributes, and to be ambassadors for the new UFS citizenship. Be on the lookout for our school-marketing team.

What is in it for members of the Red Box Society and their schools?

  • Apart from the academic merit award / sports bursary for which you automatically qualify, you receive an additional Rector’s bursary of R10 000.
  • You receive a Red Box branded with the Red Box logo and the six strategic narrative icons, with exciting and swanky UFS merchandise.
  • We inform your school of your exclusive membership.
  • If your school has a Red Box Society member in its midst, it receives an additional R2 500 sponsorship per Red Box Society member towards its prize-giving ceremony. Terms and Conditions apply.
  • If you apply for any selection course, excluding the programmes offered in Health Sciences, you are guaranteed selection if you keep your academic performance at the desired level of AP 40 and above.
  • A staff member is dedicated to provide you with premium customised service by assisting with any need or solving any problem on your behalf, including personal service during registration to ensure a smooth experience.
  • A Red Box Society picnic early in 2020 during orientation.

Terms and Conditions apply.
