R3.5m bursaries for teacher education in 2018

The Embury Institute for Higher Education is open for applications for its 2018 bursaries for teacher education, worth R3.5m. The bursaries are awarded through two initiatives, a full four-year tuition bursary scheme for high-performing but financially challenged students and the Triple 3 Campus Tuition bursary scheme.
Under the former, 12 students will receive full bursaries worth R250,000 each, applicable to the institution’s three campuses, Montana (Pretoria), Waterfall (Midrand) and Durban. This bursary, which covers all tuition and textbook fees for four years, plus the cost of a tablet or notebook in the first year, will only be available to learners whose parents or guardians earn a combined monthly income of less than R20,000. The bursaries apply to students wanting to study full-time towards a Bachelor of Education in Foundation Phase Teaching or a Bachelor of Education in Intermediate Phase Teaching from 2018 to 2021.

Under the Triple 3 Campus Tuition Fee bursary scheme, full-time first year students at all its campuses can win one of the three types of bursaries. The first of these, granted to three students, is a full bursary for the cost of each student’s first year tuition fee, while the second bursary awards three students with a R20,000 discount on their tuition fee. Finally, the third bursary under this scheme grants 33 students (11 per campus) a R10,000 discount off their tuition fee, following payment of their deposit. This bursary scheme is only being made available to first-year applicants, who have never studied with Embury and who have been accepted to study full-time on one of its formal qualifications (higher certificate, diploma, degree or advanced diploma).

Open days are planned for the three campuses: Waterfall on Saturday 29 July 2017; Montana on Saturday, 5 August 2017; and Durban on Saturday, 12 August 2017. For more information, go to
