Eskom Bursaries

Eskom is, awarding bursaries to candidates intending to study at recognised higher education institutions at universities, university of technology courses and FET schemes.

Eskom regards the awarding of bursaries to external applicants as a major contribution towards broadening the national skills pool. Eskom believes that this initiative will lead to empowered communities, an improved lifestyle, and a competent workforce.

This procedure has been developed to enable Eskom to meet its business objectives regarding future skills requirements, thereby giving structure to the skills pipeline. To this end, bursaries based on business needs are awarded to candidates intending to study at recognised higher education institutions.

Education is one of Eskom’s most important investments. We firmly believe that by educating people, we develop them to compete on an equal basis thus ensuring a better and more productive workforce. Therefore, if you believe that you have what it takes, and then being part of the Eskom team is just for you.

Our ever-expanding industrial, commercial, and mining activities as well as the increased demand on the existing infrastructure have already created an insatiable need for competent people, particularly in the fields of engineering, research, development, design, construction and production (logistics) functions. Therefore a number of Eskom bursary schemes are available to assist capable students to acquire good education which is essential for a better future.
