During her tenure as Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of Pretoria, Professor De la Rey established the Tuks Scholarship Fund. In 2018, the Fund was renamed the Professor Cheryl de la Rey Scholarship Fund to honour her contribution.
This pioneering initiative aims to support talented and deserving students from all backgrounds to enrol at the University and to complete their studies without being constrained by concerns about being unable to afford fees and resource their upkeep.
Many deserving students are constrained by their inability to afford higher education and, as a result, the country as a whole is deprived of the contribution they could possibly make if they were provided with the opportunity to access and complete their studies.
The Fund is designed as a strategic, long-term solution to alleviate some of the financial strain caused by a shortage of funding for tertiary education.
