Apply now for Shoprite bursaries for current year

2019-04-25 06:00

Leading retailer, Shoprite is giving away bursaries of up to R70 000 for the current academic year.

First and second year accounting, logistics, IT and data sciences, as well as retail business management students, are invited to apply by completing an online application.

Last year, some 286 students benefited from the bursary programme, which translated to an investment in excess of R15m.

Each bursary comes with a work-back agreement, which would see the successful applicant assured of a job at the largest private sector employer in the country once they’ve graduated.

Trainee accountant Mpilo Sicwebu was a Shoprite bursary holder for the full duration of his university career at Wits: “I was unable to secure a bursary in my matric year. So in my first year, I was conducting an online search when I found the Shoprite bursary programme,” says the 23-year-old Sicwebu, who is originally from Durban.

He grabbed the opportunity with both hands and says he was able to fully focus on his studies as the worry about finances was lifted from his shoulders.

Now an accounting article clerk at Shoprite’s Home Office, he says no two work days are ever the same. “I expected an every-man-for-himself environment, but was surprised to find something totally different. Everyone here is so accessible and willing to help me grow and develop.”
