The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi-year programme to promote teaching as a profession.  

The bursary is awarded for one academic year at a time and upon proof of academic success, the bursary may be renewed each year until the recipient of the bursary has qualified as a teacher. In essence, the recipient is required to apply for the renewal of the bursary every year.

Students who are funded through the Funza Lushaka Bursary programme are required to accept a teaching post immediately after qualifying and will need to occupy this teaching position for the amount of years they were funded.

The bursary programme is designed to boost recruitment into teaching, especially in priority subject areas. In most cases, Faculty or School of Education staff will be able to assist students with the Funza Lushaka priority subjects to determine a student's teaching priority subjects.
