Funza Lushaka bursaries pay most of the student's essential expenses. The student's study needs that are covered include: tuition fees, accommodation, meals, books, and learning materials. The bursary also covers teaching practice and if possible a small allowance for monthly living expenses.

It is important to note that should the student's expenses be more than the agreed capped value, each student will have to top it up with their own funds. Funza Lushaka also notes that institutions have different study costs. 

The bursary is awarded for one academic year at a time, and upon proof of academic success, the bursary may consider continuing each year until the beneficiary of the bursary has qualified as a teacher. 

However, the student is required to apply for the renewal of the bursary every year. 
The student can only be funded by Funza Lushaka and they are obliged to forfeit any other bursaries. 

Alternatively if the terms and conditions of the other bursary allow, the student could keep that bursary, provided the conditions for placement on completion of studies as per Funza Lushaka bursary takes priority.

The Funza Lushaka bursary is only available to South Africans with a valid identity document, and the applicants must be 30 years or younger at the time of the application.
