Are you gifted in a certain sport?
You could capitalize on your talents and hard work by applying for a sports bursary.
A sports bursary is different to an academic bursary in that it is only awarded to individuals who have achieved in one or more sporting activities.
This enables students who are not necessarily academically-minded to gain access to a higher education.
This bursary is open to students who have applied to a recognized tertiary institution in KwaZulu-Natal and have received a letter of acceptance.
The South African Reserve Bank (the Bank), as part of addressing the severe shortage of skills in South Africa, provides bursaries to students in relevant fields of study who are from disadvantaged
Students awarded a bursary by SUBTROP will be required to work for SUBTROP for a period of one year for each year that the bursary is awarded, provided that a position is available.
