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.
So do they pay for your registration? The answer is no they do not.
The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme has stated that students are responsible for paying their registration as they await the outcome of their application.
They have also stated that paying your registration fee does not mean that you will receive the bursary.
The bursary covers the following expenses:
- Tuition fees
- Accommodation including meals
- Books and learning materials
- A possible small allowance for monthly living expenses
The allocation of funds to any individual student is capped at a specific value. Where the Higher Education Institution charges more than the capped value the bursars will have to top up from their own funds. The cost structures at universities are different so the total value of the bursary will differ from institution to institution.
This funding will be provided for the following programmes of study:
- Bachelor of Education (BEd)
- Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)
