Field of Study:
SPEBS is a bursary scheme that was initiated in 1992 by the South African Institute of Civil Engineering Technicians and Technologists (SAICET). The abbreviation is short for “SAICET Patrons’ Engineering Bursary Scheme”.
When SAICET subsequently merged with the South African Institution of Civil Engineering (SAICE) it was decided that SPEBS would be retained. SPEBS currently forms an integral part of the SAICE outreach programmes.
SPEBS assists the financially needy and academically deserving students who study towards a National Diploma or a Degree in Civil Engineering at any of South Africa’s tertiary institutions. Bursaries are awarded to National Diploma students after having passed their first level (S1) examination and to degree students after having passed their first year examinations.
Bursaries are granted per semester and are dependent on the student’s examination results.
These funds are intended to partially cover registration, tuition and books.
We work closely with various tertiary institutions to identify qualifying students.
Before funds are released, successful candidates need to provide us with proof of registration for the intended semester of study at the institution concerned. Bursary cheques are then made out to the tertiary institution to be credited to the bursar’s account.
National Diploma students: Only candidates who have already passed their first level (S1) National Diploma examination are considered. SPEBS bursaries are therefore intended for S2, S3 and S4 civil engineering students only.
Degree students: Only candidates who have already passed their first semester examinations are considered. SPEBS bursaries are therefore intended for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year civil engineering students only
