Schauenburg Education Trust Bursaries 2023


Schauenburg Education Trust invites qualifying student to apply for Bursary Programme 2023 academic year.

The Schauenburg Education Trust is inviting students to apply for bursary funding, for the 2023 academic year. Bursaries will be awarded for studies at selected universities in Gauteng, within these fields:

  • Electrical Engineering (BSc/ BEng)
  • Business Administration (BCom)
  • Business Management (BCom)

The Schauenburg Education Trust bursary focuses on awarding bursaries to students pursuing studies towards scarce skills qualifications, thereby ensuring that more of these skilled professionals are developed and produced for future employment in South Africa. Bursaries will be awarded based on 2 main criteria: merit and need.

The bursary will provide cover for the following expenses (either partial or full cover): registration fees, tuition and examination fees. Students will also receive an allowance for prescribed textbooks, course materials, accommodation and a living allowance.

Bursary recipients will be required to take part in vacation work during holidays or job shadow at Schauenburg Systems.

Shortlisted candidates will be contacted and required to attend an interview with the Trustees and Bursary Administrators, as well as undergo psychometric testing.

Successful candidates will be required to sign a written contract. Should you not receive any feedback, please regard your application as unsuccessful.
