A bursary is a monetary award made by any educational institution or funding authority to individuals or groups. It is usually awarded to enable a student to attend school, university or college when they might not be able to, otherwise. Some awards are aimed at encouraging specific groups or individuals into study.
Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa (CCBSA) has opened the application process to matriculants and first-time university applicants for its Study Buddy Fund bursary programme for 2024.
The Study Buddy Fund, now in its fourth year, has assisted over 100 deserving young people from communities where CCBSA has operations, to access tertiary education.
The fund pays for full tuition, accommodation fees and textbooks.
The Study Buddy Fund comprises four programme pillars
Host community bursary programme
The bursary programme provides scholarship support to academically strong students from indigent backgrounds who meet entry requirements for access to universities. This financial support covers registration, tuition, accommodation, meal allowances and textbooks.
This provides funding to students already at university, but who do not have bursaries and/or National Students Financial Aid Scheme funding and are often regarded as the “missing middle”. CCBSA has invested R3.9m to support 80 students, of whom half were young women.
TVET college support
Targets young people in CCBSA host communities who did not meet university entrance requirements. Instead, the scholarship support focuses on technical skills development, specifically geared towards the CCBSA value chain, including electrical or mechanical engineering, and more than 40 learners have been supported.
This is e-learning using technology to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics and science. To date, CCBSA has invested more than R1m to support over 6,000 students.
Study Buddy Fund application requirements
- Must pass grade 12 with bachelor’s admission and an acceptance from a South African university. Residing in one of the host communities will be advantageous;
- Must be in grade 12 in the recruiting year or applying for first year at university;
