Full cost bursaries are available to enable eligible students to complete a full teaching qualification in an area of national priority. Recipients of these bursaries will be required to teach at a public school for the same number of years that they receive the bursary.

Qualified recipients of the bursary must request placement in a province of their choice. The provincial education department (PED) concerned will determine if there is a suitable post available. If there is not, the applicant may be placed in a PED that does not have suitable vacancies.

Selection criteria include the following:

  • The applicant’s academic ability;
  • Eligibility for an approved degree or PGCE in two of the priority areas;
  • Commitment to a teaching career, which includes: interest in working with young people; enthusiasm for a professional career in teaching; readiness to face and surmount difficult challenges; and personal integrity;
  • Commitment to teach in any school to which a student may be appointed by a PED.
  • Everything else being equal, selection should favour candidates from rural areas, candidates who wish to teach in rural areas and candidates whose financial position would otherwise exclude them from enrolment for a teaching qualification.

The Priority Areas Are:

Foundation phase (i.e. Grades R-3):Foundation phase specialization in an Indigenous African Language.

What the bursary covers

Funza Lushaka bursaries cover all the recipient’s essential expenses. Expenses covered include tuition, full accommodation including meals, books and learning materials, and a small allowance for monthly living expenses. The allocation to any individual student is capped at a specific value. Where the HEI charges more than the capped value the bursars will have to top up from own funds. Universities have different cost structures, so the total value of a bursary differs from institution to institution.

Conditions For Repeating A Year

The bursary period may be extended to cover one additional year in a degree programme, or the time required for completion of one additional course in the PGCE programme. Only one such extension will be granted. Funding for an additional year of study (i.e. 5th year) is not automatic and will be considered on a case by case basis. In cases where support is provided for an additional year, the service obligation for the student is extended by a year. Any additional time required will be at the recipient’s own cost. The bursary is renewable for one academic year at a time. On proof of academic success the bursary may be renewed each year until the recipient of the bursary has qualified as a teacher.

Conditions For Repayment Of The Bursary

The bursary must be repaid only if the recipient fails to qualify, fails to apply for a teaching post with a PED at a public school, fails to take up a teaching post with a PED at a public school, leaves a teaching post with a PED before the end of the contracted service period, or otherwise fails to meet a requirement of the bursary agreement.

How To Apply

You need to apply for admission to a teaching qualification (B Ed or PGCE) or a Bachelors degree (e.g. BSc, B Tech, BA) with at least one major course in a priority area at a university of your choice. Once you have gained admission at a university, you are required to apply for the bursary via this Internet website:

APPLICATION FOR A CYRIL RAMAPHOSA EDUCATION TRUST BURSARY

In 1996, Cyril Ramaphosa began supporting a small number of disadvantaged students with bursaries, so that they can attend university. He did this by donating the money he earned through his various public speaking engagements. These acts of kindness and generosity officially became the Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust (CRET) in 2000

Some 21 years after Cyril sponsored his first bursary, a spectacular (and growing!) hall of fame exists, filled with CRET‐enabled graduates, whose dreams of becoming highly-qualified professionals have come true.

HOW TO APPLY

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD APPLICATION FORM

All students attend intensive holiday work experience programmes twice a year, where they get additional soft skills training and networking opportunities.

Students are exposed to team‐building activities, personal development and, most importantly, a supportive and cohesive family environment, which is where we believe the CRET programme really shines.

CRET encourages students to embrace the ethos of “paying it forward”. They are reminded to never forget where they came from, and to consider the multitude of others in need. To ensure a culture of social responsibility is ingrained in our students, we set them up to work at selected welfare organisations during their holidays, while they are also tasked with distributing donations of clothes, food and other essentials within the disadvantaged community.

Furthermore, senior CRET students and alumni take on the roles of mentors to new students, while others contribute financially to the programme. Some have even gone on to implement their own corporate bursary programmes.

The story of CRET is not only one of incredible youngsters growing into incredible individuals, but one of how change can affect the future skill set of the South African youth through support, mentoring and nurture.

IMPACT

CRET has proven how seemingly out-of-reach dreams can come true through providing support to the disadvantaged youth.

Here is what some CRET alumni have had to say about the programme, in their own words:
