Thuthuka Bursary For Studying Accounting

SAICA

If you are interested in studying to become a Chartered Accountant but do not have the funds then this bursary opportunity is for you. Thuthuka Bursary Fund Trust is open.

Looking for funding to become a chartered accountant? Thuthuka has you covered

For the past 15 years, the Thuthuka Bursary has funded academically talented African and Coloured learners and students who want to become chartered accountants [CAs(SA)]. If you are one of them, don’t delay applications for the 2021 intake have just opened. 

The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) is constantly working to fix the member demographics of the chartered accountancy profession to be reflective of those of the country through its renowned Thuthuka Bursary. 

What is the Thuthuka Bursary?

A bursary fund like none other, Thuthuka covers more than just tuition, books, meals, residence fees and accommodation. The programme follows an integrated and holistic approach to ensure success, by providing students with ‘wrap around’ support in the form of, among others:

  • academic support, including various academic enrichment programmes such as additional tutorials, study skills workshops and more
  • social and emotional support
  • work-readiness and life skills training
  • mentoring and counselling
  • access to dedicated programme manager exposure to experienced chartered accountants and business leaders as mentors

This model makes Thuthuka students more successful than their counterparts. It is also this approach that makes Thuthuka students ready to face the challenges of the workplace. 

Applications for 2021 bursary intake close on 31 July 2020
