SACTWU bursary programme offers members and their dependents financial academic support at South African Universities, Technikons and other higher education institutions that are registered with the National Department of Education.
This Bursary scheme was founded in 1975 with a small contribution by the members to support the education costs of their children and dependents. The bursary will only cover 75% of fees to a maximum of R35 000 per year and any remaining costs must be paid by the student.
