Are you considering becoming a teacher? Not sure what the procedure or cost will be? Maybe you need some financial assistance. The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme gives you the chance to make your teaching dream come true.
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 2016 will be accepted from 01 October 2016.
Please note that there are approximately 3500 new bursaries available in 2016. New applicants are advised to also pursue other funding opportunities.
