Quantum Foods Bursary 2022
Quantum Foods is offering financial assistance to a certain number of students each year via bursaries.
These are meant for students who are passionate about the animal nutrition sector and want to become a part of it.
For the academic session 2022, two meritorious students pursuing MSc Agriculture or Honours qualification will be selected for the Quantum Foods bursary programme. Other domains or fields of study will not be considered.
The bursary value is determined on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the need, the bursary will cover either part or full tuition cost.
Once selected, the company will cover the tuition cost for the remainder of your qualification. Students are expected to pay for the rest of the expenses like textbooks, meals, accommodation on their own.
As part of the bursary agreement, students must agree to work at one of the Nova Feeds business units for at least 12 months. Thereby, bursars will gain valuable practical knowledge and get a monthly salary. The company may consider permanent employment after the 12-month
