Dell Young Leaders Bursary Program South Africa
About Michael & Susan Dell Foundation
The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation was founded in 1999 through the sales revenue generated from the sales of Dell Inc. shares. Since then, more than $1.3 billion has been allocated to help children and communities living in poverty. In the foundation’s early years, the main goal was focused on improving children’s education and health in Central Texas. However, a few years later on, the foundation’s scope has extended to national and to global. Today, MSDF operates in United States, Central Texas, India and South Africa.
