Netflix declared their support for the South African creative ecosystem in favour of Black inclusion in the film and television business in early 2021. It has made a commitment to provide complete post-graduate scholarships at South African universities to assist budding Black filmmakers and television producers in their official certification and training.
According to Netflix, Tshikululu Social Investments, a management and consulting company for social investment funds, has collaborated with the streaming service as an implementation partner/fund administrator.
The Scholarship aims to promote the formal qualification and training of young Black creatives in the cinema and television disciplines by providing financial help via full scholarships at partner higher educational institutions in South Africa, as mentioned below.
