How does one apply for this bursary?:

Only online applications are accepted. The link is made active during the application period.

A bursary is a monetary award that is granted on the basis of financial need. Bursaries are different than scholarships. Scholarships are merit-based and are awarded for academic achievement. Bursaries are financial-need based awards that do not have to be repaid with money. However some bursaries require that you ‘pay back’ your bursary by committing to work at your benefactors company for a period of time, usually for the same amount of time that the bursary was supplied for.

The intention of the undergraduate bursary program is to supplement, not replace, students’ primary sources of funding.

5 tips to apply for a bursary

1. Be complete! The bursary committee has to read your application and make a decision. It’s hard to assess your situation if you’ve left information out.

2. Submit it on time. The deadline is important – late applications will not be considered.

3. Apply for government student financial assistance. Check to see what NSFAS has available at all times. Bursaries are typically issued to students who demonstrate the greatest financial need and receiving student aid is one of the easiest ways to show need.

4. Be realistic. When you are filling out the academic year budget, be realistic about how much you spend. Indicating that you spend R5000pm on entertainment might help show that you have more expenses than resources but it probably won’t get you a bursary.

5. Don’t forget your resources. Make sure you tell them how much money you have. If you tell them you have R20,000 worth of expenses and R150 worth of resources they’re going to think you forgot to fill in half the application.

Dell South Africa aims to develop literate and connected communities and to bridge the gap between the “haves” and “haves-not”. Providing quality education is one way in which it strives to bridge this gap. A percentage of every rand spent by a Dell customer goes to the Dell Development Fund (DDF). Over the past few years, the DDF has engaged in bursary programmes with the University of the Western Cape (UWC), the University of Venda, and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU). This year, again, the DDF will be providing more academically deserving students the opportunity to have a bursary education at these universities.

According to Natasha Reuben, Head of Transformation, Dell South Africa Development Fund: “Graduating students are also offered a one-year bursuries with us at Dell. As a team, we pride ourselves on focusing on real transformation within the communities we call home and are proud to be involved with these organisations. We will continue to work to ensure these initiatives deliver real value and real benefits, contributing to sustainable development and economic transformation in South Africa.

“In addition to providing their tuition fees, DDF supplies the students with a Dell laptop, campus residential fees, a monthly stipend and educational materials. We strive to cater for any need they will have during the course of their tertiary education, so that they can concentrate their energies at excelling academically,” adds Reuben.

On completion of their final year, the students are rewarded with a Dell-sponsored and hosted year-end function, where they have the opportunity to meet and network with Dell employees. This opportunity is created for the students in order for them to meet the Dell staff and celebrate their achievements.

Over the past nine years, the DDF, which has established a number of training programmes and initiatives directed towards equipping young adults with both life and educational skills, has again awarded bursaries to academically deserving students.

SAPOA raises R40m for bursary fund

28 May 2015

SAPOA Bursary 

Amelia Beattie, Head of STANLIB Direct Property Investments (SDPI), has handed over the presidency of the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) after a successful year, culminating in the raising of R40 million for the SAPOA bursary fund. This injection into the fund will allow 100 students to complete a four-year BSc degree.

This injection into the fund will allow 100 students to complete a four-year BSc degree.

The money was raised through a contribution by the Services SETA (SSETA) after negotiations with SAPOA in the past seven weeks.

This is according to Beattie, who says they are thrilled that they managed to exceed their original target of raising enough funding to educate 50 students.

She says education has always been important to SAPOA, but during her reign she wanted to take it up a notch so they can truly upskill people. This will lead to improved performance of companies with property portfolios, resulting in increased GDP and job creation, she says.

This is one of many of SAPOA’s achievements reached under Beattie’s presidency, the third female president in the Association’s 48-year history. Amelia’s appointment was unsurprising given her passion for people and property, and her many accomplishments since she entered the industry 16 years ago, says SAPOA CEO, Neil Gopal.

Beattie has always placed a premium on educating and empowering as many people as possible. “I have a deep passion for property, not only because of its investment returns and bricks and mortar, but for the difference it makes to people and the communities it serves,” she says.

 

 

 

As SAPOA president, Beattie says she wanted to leave a legacy of educating and empowering people in the industry. She says she hopes they can create an environment where property is the career of choice for school leavers by fostering a greater awareness of the awesome opportunities this industry offers. She also placed an emphasis on increasing female representation in the industry.

Another focus was on making local government aware of the importance of the property industry. SAPOA’s ‘Meet the Mayor’ campaign provided an opportunity for CEOs to meet local mayors and their executive teams around the country.

These sessions provided a platform for participants to debate challenges facing the industry, to work on development and infrastructure matters, and to remove obstacles to investment, as well as to create stronger partnerships and collaboration.

In the past year, SAPOA established an Africa Focus Committee to foster closer collaboration among its members across the continent. STANLIB, as part of the Liberty Group, is known for its property capability, and is continuing to expand its operations across Africa. As STANLIB has expertise in property across Africa, several of its property investment professionals are active participants in the Africa Focus Committee.

STANLIB was the principal sponsor of this year’s SAPOA annual International Convention and Property Exhibition, which took place in Durban this week. The asset manager has a proud and long association with SAPOA, with three former SAPOA presidents working within the Group, in addition to Beattie. They are Samual Ogbu, Liberty Group Executive: West Africa, Alex Phakhati, Fund Manager, STANLIB Direct Property Investments, and Ben Kodisang, Managing Director of STANLIB Africa.
