MultiChoice South Africa recently announced that two 236 students will benefit from bursaries worth R26 million in 2021.
The company is making tertiary education a reality for students in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, Broadcasting, Media, Film & Television, Human Resources, Finance, Economics, Law, Communications, UI/UX/CX Design, Consumer Insights and Advertising.
While the MultiChoice bursaries programme has been a long-standing part of the company’s upliftment initiatives, its 2021 bursaries are of particular importance to the company. “Many families and households are struggling to make ends meet after either the loss of employment and in many cases, the tragic loss of loved ones and breadwinners due to COVID-19. Our 2021 bursary programme is one of our initiatives that seek to soften this blow,” says MultiChoice South Africa’s CEO, Nyiko Shiburi.
The MultiChoice bursaries programme enables students to focus on their studies without the financial worry and stress that often plagues students and negatively affects their chances of success. The bursaries go beyond tuition fees to cover registration fees, accommodation, and a yearly living allowance.
Applicants must be South African and be registered at a recognised South African institution of higher learning for an undergraduate or post-graduate degree up to the Masters’ level. They must also meet the academic performance requirements of a 65% or higher aggregate mark in their previous year of study.
The bursaries will be awarded for the 2021 academic year only. They may be renewed, based on the availability of funds and the student’s academic performance.
