The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi-year government bursary programme that promotes teaching in public schools. Bursaries are available to enable eligible students to complete a full teaching qualification in an area of national priority.
Recipients of the bursary will be required to teach at a school or provincial education department for the same number of years that they receive the bursar
The bursary is only awarded to South African citizens and applicants for the bursary must already have been accepted into an appropriate study programme at a recognized higher education institution. Applicants also need to meet certain admission criteria of the institution and they must also meet the national selection criteria for the Funza Lushaka bursary.
There are various priority areas that qualify for the bursary and in addition to specialising in a priority area, you will also need to specialise in a phase for the B.Ed and PGCE teaching qualifications. Please note that those who already have other teaching qualifications do not qualify for this bursary. 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. Universities have different cost structures, so the total value of a bursary differs from institution to institution.
