ORANGE CARPET REWARDS PROGRAMME

The « Orange Carpet Rewards Programme » at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) is a prestigious initiative designed to recognize and reward academic excellence among high-achieving Grade 12 learners. As we stand on the cusp of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), where traditional career landscapes are rapidly evolving, UJ offers a forward-thinking educational approach. This programme is tailored for individuals who aspire to thrive in a future where technology and humanity intersect.

The programme provides exceptional benefits, including conditional admission to UJ, ensuring that high achievers have a guaranteed place at the university, provided their Grade 11 results are maintained. Benefits extend to academic and non-financial support, such as merit bursaries based on final Grade 12 results, waiver of academic registration fees, a R2 000 voucher for educational materials, and guaranteed accommodation at UJ residences, among other perks.

Qualifying for the Orange Carpet Rewards Programme requires a minimum of 70% in six best subjects (excluding Life Orientation) with a total Admission Point Score (APS) of at least 37 from final Grade 11 results. The program emphasizes the importance of maintaining or improving this performance in Grade 12, meeting specific programme requirements, and ensuring applications are submitted by the designated deadline.

UJ’s commitment to nurturing future leaders is evident in this programme, which not only rewards academic achievement but also prepares students for the dynamic challenges of the 4IR era. With comprehensive support, exclusive opportunities, and a focus on holistic development, the Orange Carpet Rewards Programme exemplifies UJ’s dedication to fostering a new generation of innovative thinkers and pioneers.
