Schauenburg Education Trust Bursaries
The Schauenburg Education Trust financially assists qualified students who wish to complete studies in the fields which have been identified as scarce skills. The Trust wants to make sure that these skills will be available for employment in South Africa by offering a bursary scheme.
Bursaries for the 2019 academic year will cover 100% of the prescribed university tuition fees, registration fees and exam fees, an amount equal to the average rate for accommodation at a university hostel to which the student is studying, three meals a day, textbooks and course material as well as living allowances.
Bursaries are awarded according to merit, need and other requirements as defined by the Trust. The Trust will identify the accepted universities for the bursary. Students who are already a recipient of other bursaries from other providers will not be accepted. Bursaries can be terminated and withdrawn at any time should the bursary holder does not meet the conditions of the bursary agreement.
