The HORTGRO Bursary Scheme provides support in discovering and training the best minds and developing a strong labour force. It is funded by HORTGRO as well as AgriSETA and Deciduous Fruit Industry Development Trust.
Bursaries will be awarded within the following fields of study:
Teaching is the cornerstone of development and growth within a country, it is for this reason that there remains a growing demand for qualified teachers in South Africa. This growing demand is not without problems, as the education system continues to be riddled with complexities relating to the quality and accessibilty of education.
The Department of Education has put measures in place in order to help meet the growing demand for qualified teachers, however, this demand is not met by an adequate supply of teachers.
Scholarships awarded by the South African Association of Botanists for 2020

In 2020, three awards of R10 000 for 1 year of tertiary study at Honours level (or 4th year level of study) in any botanically-related science will be granted to three registered students, on a competitive basis.
