Nelson Mandela Children's Fund Bursary

Bursary Details

Nelson Mandela Children Fund: Nursing Bursary / Scholarship Programme 2016

The bursaries are available for both short (credit bearing) courses and for post graduate nurse training diplomas (one or two years) at recognised and accredited South African Universities.
The Trust is keen to hear from all post graduate nursing students interested in specialising in paediatric nursing, who are planning to further their studies in 2015, 2016 & 2017 and who are self-funded. If you are a registered nurse with at least two years applicable experience and are in excellent health and you want to focus on one of the following areas of paediatric specialities:

Neonatal Nursing, Child Nursing, Oncology Nursing, Nephrology Nursing, Intensive Care Nursing, Operating Theatre Nursing

You are requested to carefully read our Bursary Agreement and our Administrative Requirements before completing the on-line application form (hard copies are also available on request) and more specifically, to note the post study obligation to come and work back time equal to your period of studies at the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital (in Johannesburg) when it opens its doors in 2016.

Please note that no further correspondence will take place until the Trust has determined which applicants have been shortlisted for interviews. Should you not have heard from the Trust within two weeks of submitting your bursary application, consider your application unsuccessful. The Trust reserves the right to NOT make any bursary awards. Bursary applicants who have been interviewed and to whom the Trust wishes to grant bursaries should note that they will also have to be accepted by the participating academic institutions.

Please note: The undergraduate bursary covers second-year studies onwards, i.e. undergrads who have completed their first year of study. This is in addition to post-graduate nursing studies.
