The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi-year programme that promotes teaching in public schools. Full-cost bursaries are available to enable eligible students to complete a full teaching qualification in an area of national priority. Recipients of these bursaries will be required to teach at a public school for the same number of years that they receive the bursary.
Qualified recipients of the bursary must request placement in a province of their choice. The provincial education department (PED) concerned will determine whether there is suitable post available. If there is not, the applicant may be placed in a PED that does have suitable vacancies. Please note that bursars cannot choose the school in which they would like to be placed.
Applications for the Funza Lushaka bursary in 2012 are closed. The application facility will be available again towards the end of 2012 to accept applications for the bursary in 2013. This is a very good financial assistance to help you cover your studies. It is not a loan so you won't have to pay it back. More details
