Bursaries in South Africa

The Professional Provident Society of South Africa is the largest multidisciplinary group of graduate professionals in the world with over 290 000 professional members. PPS is the only mutual financial services company in South Africa that has focused exclusively on graduate professionals for over 72 years.

Unlike a company that is listed on a stock exchange, PPS belongs to its members and operates under the ethos of mutuality, this means that members with qualifying PPS products can exclusively share in the profits of the PPS Group, through the unique PPS Profit-Share Account (previously known as the SRA). PPS offers tailor-made insurance, investment and healthcare solutions exclusively for graduate professionals. PPS is an authorised financial services provider.

Become a PPS member and you can also have your share in all PPS profits through the PPS Profit-Share Account.

PPS offers unique financial solutions to select graduate professionals with a 4-year degree. PPS is an authorised Financial Services Provider. Members with qualifying products share in the profits of PPS.
