The Funza Lushaka Bursary

The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi-year programme that promotes teaching in public schools. Full-cost bursaries are available to enable eligible students to complete a full teaching qualification in an area of national priority. Recipients of these bursaries will be required to teach at a public school for the same number of years that they receive the bursary.

Qualified recipients of the bursary must request placement in a province of their choice. The provincial education department (PED) concerned will determine whether there is suitable post available. If there is not, the applicant may be placed in a PED that does have suitable vacancies. Please note that bursars cannot choose the school in which they would like to be placed.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

  • Applications for the Funza Lushaka bursary for 2015 will be accepted from 01 October 2014.
  • Please note that there are approximately 3500 new bursaries available in 2015. New applicants are advised to also pursue other funding opportunities.
  Closing dates:
      Re-applications close on 21 November 2014; New applications close on 09 January 2015.
