What Are The GCRA Bursary Requirements?

The Gauteng City Region Academy (GCRA) is a branch that aims to promote skills development in Gauteng. Keeping with this pursuit, the GCRA has a bursary fund for university students, and there are a number of requirements to be met to qualify for their bursary programme.



Apart from providing bursaries in attempts to promote skills development, the GCRA provides skills and career guidance programmes, learnerships, and internships which are said to prove most beneficial to South African youth in particular.

The GCRA bursary covers tuition, a laptop, accommodation and learning materials for students who need funding to further their studies within the Gauteng province. The following are the set of requirements to be met to qualify for the bursary:

  • Applicant must be a South African citizen
  • Applicant must live in, and have completed matric in Gauteng
  • Applicant must be between 18 and 35 years of age
  • Undergraduate and postgraduate applicants must be studying towards a qualification at an accredited institution
  • Applicant must have a strong academic record

It must be noted that an applicant could meet all of these requirements and still not be accepted due to the strength of their competition and a number of other potential factors.
