Funza Lushaka Bursary


Aim and Benefits of Funza Lushaka Bursary

  • The Funza Lushaka Bursary is awarded for one academic year at a time. It is not automatically re-awarded. A reward will depend on academic progress. There is no automatic promise of financial support for a fifth (5th) year of study i.e. beyond the 4th year of study. On evidence of good academic performance, and pending the availability of funds, the bursary may be re-awarded.
  • Recipients of bursaries will be required to teach one year for every year for which they have received the bursary.
  • What the bursary covers: Funza Lushaka bursaries cover most of the recipient’s essential expenses. Expenses covered include tuition fees, accommodation including meals, books and learning materials, teaching practice and if possible a small allowance for monthly living expenses.
  • The allocation to any individual student is capped at a specific value. Where the university charges more than the capped value the bursars will have to top up from their own funds. Universities have different cost structures, so the total value of a bursary differs from institution to institution.

  • The bursary is only awarded to South African citizens with a valid South African ID number;
    The applicant should demonstrate good academic ability;
  • Applicants should be 30 years and below to qualify for the Funza Lushaka Bursary
  • Allocation of Funza Lushaka bursaries to Higher Education Institution employees, their spouse and their dependents/children is not permissible.
