Call for Shoprite bursary applications

The Shoprite Group is searching for bright, hard-working young people who need funding in order to continue their post-school education and have a better chance of finding jobs.

Shoprite provided 191 students with bursaries to study over the 2017 academic year, and is calling on more students to take up bursary opportunities for 2018.

In the face of such high youth unemployment and a shortage of funding for many students in need, Shoprite invested R10.9 million in bursaries this year alone.

The Group’s bursaries are offered to matriculants applying to higher education institutions in South Africa as well as to students currently completing tertiary qualifications in programmes such as pharmacy, chartered accounting, logistics, IT and retail business management.

Candidates could qualify for a bursary of up to R70,000, depending on the course of study and institution, to assist with tuition, books and accommodation.

Additionally, each bursary is linked to a work-back agreement with the Group, giving students the boost they need to kick-start a great career.
