Silulumanzi Bursary Scheme

Silulumanzi has launched a bursary Scheme to assist students from disadvantaged backgrounds, who are intent on pursuing tertiary studies to pursue careers in the water sector. The decision to launch the fund was taken by Silulumanzi’s management, partly due to the dire need highlighted by the university student protests that rocked many university campuses across South Africa in 2015.

One of the conditions of the bursary is that the students will work for Silulumanzi after their graduation if vacant suitable positions are available in the company at the time of completion of their studies.

External Bursary Fund 2024

Students/Undergraduates who are interested in joining the Water Industry can apply for our External Bursary Scheme in the study fields listed in the advertisement.
