CITY OF TSHWANE BURSARIES
Full-Time Bursary Scheme for Non-Employees
This scheme is applicable to students studying on a full-time basis at any institutions registered with SAQA. By implication these students may not be employed on a full-time basis while studying but may be eligible for vacation employment and/or experiential training in the relevant division.
This scheme provides for all prescribed class fees, plus an additional 50% of class fees to assist with books and necessary equipment. Fees are paid for the minimum duration of the course as determined by the relevant educational institutions. It is expected of the students that they repeat at their own cost any academic year which they have not completed successfully.
The fees for related expenses such as books are paid directly to the student, while class fees are paid to the educational institution except in the case where the student has already paid in advance.
The student is expected to enter into a contractual agreement with the Municipality. This agreement contains all the general provisions related to the bursary, including a service binding clause compelling the student on completion of the qualification to enter and remain in the Municipality's service for a minimum of 12 months for every year of study in which a bursary or a portion thereof was paid out to the student.
The Municipality provides vacation employment and experiential training to its full-time bursary holders where it is required by the academic institution that the student receive practical training as part of the course. In these instances the bursary holder will be appointed on a contract basis. The contract appointment will be for a specific period.
These bursaries fall under Tshwane's geographical jurisdiction, because it is administratively preferable that bursaries are awarded for study at local institutions. It is also fair to the community that bursaries are advertised locally.
The advertisement is placed for one week every year, anytime from June to August.
Applicants are evaluated and pre-selected by HR and the relevant division, according to predetermined criteria, based on the specific corporate needs of the Municipality and the relevant division.
