The JB Marks Education Trust Fund invites student to apply for Bursary Programme 2022 / 2023 academic year.

Bursaries will be awarded for undergraduate studies, for NUM members and their dependents (children or spouse).

Every year, the JB Marks Education Trust Fund awards bursaries to NUM members and their dependents, for studies towards undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications. Each year, around 200 bursaries are awarded for undergraduate studies and around 50 bursaries are awarded for postgraduate studies.*

The value of the bursary will be determined by 2 main factors: availability of funds and the students field of study.

  • If students change their course of study or their institution after the bursary has been awarded, the bursary will be immediately withdrawn.
