Funza Lushaka Bursary Scheme – South Africans 2024

Are you a South African student who is looking to pursue a degree or postgraduate studies in education? Look no further than the Funza Lushaka Bursary Scheme! The scholarship is designed to help cover most of the essential expenses for recipients, including tuition fees, accommodation (including meals), books and learning materials, teaching practice, and even a small allowance for monthly living expenses.


Several scholarships are available for both undergraduate and postgraduate students who are South African nationals.

Students must meet the minimum academic criteria for the award of the bursary.
