The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme


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.

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

  • Applications for the Funza Lushaka bursary for 2014 will be accepted from 01 October 2013.
  • Please note that there are approximately 3500 new bursaries available in 2014. New applicants are advised to also pursue other funding opportunities.

Closing dates:
Re-applications close on 15 November 2013; New applications close on 10 January 2014.
