One of South Africa’s oldest oil companies, Engen, is inviting academically deserving students who are also financially needy (those who can’t afford to put themselves through university) to apply for their bursary for funding starting in 2013.
Requirements of the Engen Bursary in 2013
Bursaries will be awarded ONLY to students who will be either in their first year or second year in university. Bursaries will be awarded high achievers (academically), who are South African citizens. For those students who are already in university, high performance is required – a minimum of 65% average achievement in your current subjects (Advice from the Bursary Bin: Those who aim average get average opportunities, aim for 100% you may just get 95% and who know what that may do to your chances of getting this bursary). The Engen bursary programme is open to South Africans of all economic backgrounds, but preference will be given to those from previously disadvantaged backgrounds.
Fields of study required for the Engen Bursary
Your application will only be considered if you want to study or are already studying (max: 2nd Year in 2013) towards any of the following qualifications:
- BCom Accounting
- BCom Information Systems
- BSc Electrical Engineering
- BSc Chemical Engineering
