The Red & Yellow School has heard South Africa’s call for education and will in 2016 offer a greater number of bursaries for all its full and part-time programmes in Marketing and Advertising.
“The 2015 Fees-Must-Fall campaign once again highlighted the lack of tertiary opportunities for deserving previously disadvantaged candidates, especially in our industry,” says Red & Yellow’s CEO Lynette Oelschig.
“In addition to the desperate need for free education in our country, our industry struggles to reflect the markets it intends to connect with,” she adds.
Bursary applications for arts funding for 2016 from the National Arts Council of South Africa (NAC) are now open for post graduate students who are involved in arts studies, together with registered education and training institutions that provide tuition in the fields of theatre, dance, crafts, literature, music and visual arts.
The Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust assists with registration and/or tuition fees for studies at tertiary institutions such as the University of Cape Town, University of the Western Cape, University of Stellenbosch, Cape Peninsula University of Technology and Further Education and Training Colleges.
