Harmony Bursary Scheme
We acknowledge that our employees present and potential have aspirations but perhaps not the means to be formerly educated in their fields of interest. To this end we have created the Harmony Bursary Scheme which awards successful applicants, bursaries for full time study at accredited tertiary institutions. The scheme covers tuition and residence fees, the cost of prescribed text books and also provides a personal allowance.

The scheme is designed to contribute to the development of historically disadvantaged South Africans.

For the year 2015 preference is given to the following fields which are functional to the mining industry:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering (Heavy Current ONLY)
  • IT (Information technology)
  • Applying for a bursary

Applications for the Harmony Bursary Scheme are open from 1 April to 31 August every year to be used the following year. If your application is successful you will be asked to enter into a contractual obligation with Harmony Gold Ltd. Detail of this agreement will be explained to the successful candidate in full.

Note that South African universities now require a prospective student to first apply for admission before he/she can register. In order to study in 2015 you must have applied to register with your university of choice by 31 March 2014.

Anybody asking you to pay money to schedule your interview or offer you job may be a scam
