About Gibela's bursary programme
In 2015, Gibela established a bursary programme that will help to deal with the current skills gap in South Africa. It is intended to empower students to pursue career paths that would otherwise be out of their reach.
The programme will run for 10 years and, during this time, we plan to award a total of 2 800 bursaries. We have appointed 2 local service providers to manage the process, and they will choose candidates based on an interview, academic performance and physical health.
The bursaries, which are each valid for a year but can be renewed, are open to South African students across the country with a written acceptance letter from a university to study engineering, supply chain and logistics, IT or finance. Students at technical vocational education and training (TVET) colleges can also apply for bursaries to study a range of disciplines. Successful students will receive financial support from Gibela for both their tuition and accommodation.
