Revered all over the world as the father of a nation, the figure of peace and the spirit of democracy, Nelson Mandela has never wandered from our thoughts. With his current health in the balance, the South African College of Business (SACOB) believes that the best way to honour his life’s work is through their 67 Minutes pledge for 2013; to contribute to one of Nelson Mandela’s greatest passions — education.

It is in this spirit that SACOB has pledged 67 bursaries that will be made available over 67 minutes on Tata Madiba’s Birthday — Thursday, 18 July.

Six bursaries — valued at a total of R300 000 — will be awarded for each of the 11 ICB Accounting Programme courses, while the remaining bursaries will be offered across all ICB Accounting Programme courses at the discretion of the college.

The bursary includes all study material and access to the Online Classroom. Students who qualify will need to cover their own ICB Membership and Assessment Fees however, should they pass these exams and assessments, SACOB will reimburse the Assessment Fee to the student.

If you are ready to take the steps to a greater future, log onto this Thursday. The window of opportunity will be open for 67 Minutes, from 10h00 – 11h07 and can be accessed through the banner on the homepage.

Winners will be announced on and notified by 19 July, 2013. Bursaries are awarded at the discretion of the College and are not transferable. Additional T&Cs apply.

A full set of T&Cs are available from SACOB. For further information visit
