In response to this question, the Department of Basic Education says:

a student who has been offered both a Funza Lushaka Bursary and another bursary must choose to decline the other bursary.

You are allowed to apply for the Funza Lushaka Bursary even if you have another bursary. Should you be accepted to receive funding through the Funza Lushaka Bursary, you will however have to pull out from the other bursary.

The Department of Basic Education aims to increase the number of educators in the country. This is being done through the Funza Lushaka Bursary which provides funding to students wishing to study in the Education field. 

To qualify for funding through the Funza Lushaka bursary, you need to be studying or wishing to study a Bachelor of Education (BEd) or a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE).

The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi-year programme that promotes teaching in public schools. The bursaries are provided so that eligible students may complete a teaching qualification in an area recognised as priority.

University can cost a lot of money, taking into consideration learning material, transport costs, accommodation and living expenses. The Funza Lushaka Bursary can take care of those for you. 

Funza Lushaka also funds online studies and part-time studies.
