The Shoprite Group’s bursary purse for 2018 has not yet been depleted.

Students currently completing tertiary qualifications in programmes such as pharmacy, chartered accounting, supply chain management and logistics, information technology and retail business management could still qualify for bursaries of up to R70 000 (depending on the course of study and institution) to assist with tuition, books and accommodation fees.

Each bursary is also linked to a work-back agreement with the Group, giving students the boost they need to kick-start a great career.

As the largest private sector employer in South Africa, Shoprite develops people’s skills to drive its own business as well as the economy at large through job opportunities. In the past year, Shoprite created over 6 000 new jobs of which 91% were filled by people aged 34 and under.

Last year Shoprite’s bursary programme paid for the studies of 287 students, which translated to a investment of more than R16 million. The Group’s bursaries are offered to matriculants applying to higher education institutions in South Africa as well as to students currently completing tertiary qualifications.

With almost 30% of South Africans aged 15 - 24 years not currently in employment, education or training, the Shoprite Group is searching for bright, hard-working young people who require financial support in order to continue their post-school education.
