Bursaries and Post Matric Support

Wesizwe provides bursary opportunities to students engaged in courses of study aligned to our operational needs. In 2012, we continued to support two out of the three initial local community university level learners who commenced their studies.  This support for these two bursars will continue in 2014.


In 2015, we intend awarding 4 new bursaries, in addition to the existing 10 bursars who will be continuing their learning during this period. 


In addition, Wesizwe sponsored and participated at the career exhibition in Rustenburg during July 2013 in an effort to identify potential future bursary candidates and to publicise the Wesizwe bursaries. The exhibition also informed our HRD programmes in planning for the forthcoming period. 


Wesizwe also provides post matric support to four students through the Academic Enrichment programme and Jeppe College, as detailed below.
