The Thuthuka Bursary Fund 2012 for African Students

Started by sparrow, Jan 06, 2011, 01:01 AM


The Thuthuka Bursary Fund is looking for academically strong black and
coloured learners who aspire to become Chartered Accountants. Students who
do exceptionally well in Mathematics and have excellent marks in the other
subjects to qualify for university entrance may apply.

The University of Pretoria has 50 Thuthuka bursaries available to award
each year for students studying B.Com (Accounting Sciences). It is a
unique bursary in that, if you are chosen, you get placed on the University of
Pretoria Thuthuka Programme, which is committed to seeing you pass your
exams and qualifying as a CA (SA).

Students who do exceptionally well in most subjects yet obtain poor results in
Mathematics do not qualify. Good results in Mathematics (NOT Mathematical
Literacy) are key in a pursuing a career in Chartered Accountancy.

Do you qualify?
· Do you have 60% in Mathematics in your Grade 11 Final Results (Level 5)?
· Do you have enough points to qualify for university entrance?
· Do you come from a family that cannot support you financially at tertiary?
· Are you an African or Coloured learner?

If you answered YES to all the questions above, then you qualify.
