Bursaries in South Africa

The AVI Bursary Programme is one of the company’s major initiatives. This Programme distinguishes itself by the commitment of the company to its bursary beneficiaries.

Not only do they arrange vacation work opportunities for all their bursars, but they also provide graduate development positions to students who completed their studies.

The company also runs a volunteer industry mentor programme for its bursars and StudyTrust employees are regularly benefitting from the mentor training offered by AVI’s Learning and Development department.

The company also offers vacation work opportunities to non-AVI sponsored students through its Spitz and Kurt Gaigher stores.

StudyTrust works with some of the company’s other beneficiary programmes, e.g. the Kliptown project and Star Schools, providing bursaries for alumni of these programmes who do qualify for further and tertiary education.
