Bursary review process and conditions

If you meet all our requirements, we’ll award you a bursary. We’ll do so on set conditions, however.

  • Zutari’s emerging talent team will review your academic performance twice a year (in June and in November, as soon as you can send us your exam results). If your academic results no longer meet the minimum requirements, the bursary will be suspended until your results improve. But if your results still meet our requirements, Zutari will keep paying towards your studies, although the Bursary scheme won’t pay more than R120 000 per year.
  • If you become one of Zutari’s bursary holders, you will be asked to come and work for Zutari during the university’s breaks. You will be given an opportunity to work in different units so you are introduced to different areas relating to your field of study. And you will also have access to the graduate and bursar network for additional support.
  • Once you’ve completed your studies, you’ll take part in the Zutari graduate recruitment process so that you can be placed in a graduate role. Once you’ve been placed, you’ll have to work back one year for every year of your studies Zutari provided funding for.
