The Funza Lushaka Bursary aims to help those who are interested in a teaching career. The bursary covers tuition fees, accommodation, meals, books and a small allowance for monthly living expenses.

Recipients of the bursary are required to teach at a public school once they have graduated. They will be required to teach at the school for the duration that they received the bursary.

Those who are 30 years old or younger and passed their Grade 12 with a Bachelor’s Pass are eligible for the bursary.

If the applicant is already enrolled at a university or Higher Education Institution, they should pass all the modules that they took the previous year.

The bursary requires applicants to have completed certain subjects, such as Mathematics, Science and Technology. However, Provincial Education Departments also have their own subject requirements.

The Department of Basic Education and the Higher Education Institutions form part of the committee which decides who will be awarded the bursary, based on the requirements.

Therefore it is the responsibility of the Universities and Higher Education Institutions to notify the applicants about the outcome of their applications.

First-time applicants are allowed to apply for the bursary from 1 October 2021 till February 2022. However, returning students may reapply between 1 October and 29 November 2021.
