Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme for young South Africans


The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi-year programme to promote teaching as a profession. Bursaries are available to enable eligible students to complete a teaching qualification in an area of national priority. Recipients of these bursaries will be required to teach at a public school for the same number of years that they received the bursary.

Recipients of the bursary must apply on-line for the bursary in every year. The recipient must also complete the placement information as required in every year.

The provincial education department (PED) will place a graduate bursar in a suitable teaching post. If a particular PED does not have a suitable teaching post for the graduate bursar, the applicant may be placed in a PED that does have a suitable post.

Please note that bursars cannot choose the school in which they would like to be placed and placement cannot be deferred for any reason.
