The purpose of the project is to annually place between 250 – 300 fully bursared Black African and Coloured students at selected SAICA-accredited universities in cohorts of 50 per university on special undergraduate BCom Accounting education programmes. The accredited universities that are part of the programme are the University of KwaZulu-Natal, University of Johannesburg, Stellenbosch University, University of Pretoria, University of Cape Town, Free State University and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.

The Thuthuka Bursary Fund is looking for academically strong learners who aspire to become Chartered Accountants. Students who do exceptionally well in Mathematics and have excellent marks in the other subject to qualify for university entrance may apply.

* Do you have enough points to qualify for university entrance?
* Do you come from a family that cannot support you financially at tertiary?
* Are you an African or Coloured learner?

    From the Thuthuka website I found this:

    Once the learner has met all the above requirements and gone through the relevant test and interview only then will the bursary be provisionally awarded to the learner pending the final Grade 12 results. Here is the site:

    So, if your application is successful, you should get something in your mailbox. Electronic or snail mail.

    In future, I advise you to always follow up your applications via telephone. Or in this case via email…

    That way you are showing bursary officer that you are committed to your application. However, in this case, seeing that the closing date was on the 30th of April, it might a too little to late to do that…

    All the best…
