South Africa: The Funza Lushaka Bursary

Started by sparrow, Oct 01, 2010, 03:01 AM


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 for 2011 will be accepted from 01 October 2010.
    * Please note that there is a limited number of new bursaries available (±700). New applicants are advised to also pursue other funding opportunities.

Closing dates: Re-applications close on 19 November 2010; New applications close on 28 January 2011.
