The Congress of South African Students (COSAS) is a student organisation in South Africa. It was founded on 31 May 1979 in Welgespruit, Johannesburg.[1] COSAS has the stated goal of uniting and representing South African students of poor and disadvantaged backgrounds at "the Pre-Tertiary Level".[2] The COSAS moto is “Each One Teach One”.[3]

COSAS is preceded by South African Students' Movement, that organisation having been banned by the Apartheid government in 1977.[4]
