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.
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.
