High-achieving learners from low income households are invited to apply for an all-inclusive bursary to study for an undergraduate degree at a South African university in the 2020 academic year.

Applicants can apply for bursaries to study towards science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) degrees. The bursary is also open to qualifying children of Sasol employees and Sasol Khanyisa/Inzalo shareholders, while applicants from Sasol fence-line communities can apply for bursaries to study for STEM and non-STEM (nursing, accounting, economics) degrees.

You must be a SA citizen and meet the minimum university requirements at a SA university for 2020. In addition, The Sasol Foundation will only select learners from homes with a combined annual household income of under R600 000. Learners currently in Grade 12 must use their final Grade 11 results to apply.

Since inception, the Sasol Foundation has provided bursaries to more than 1 500 youths mostly from township and rural areas, among them many women. The bursaries are comprehensive, going beyond financial support to ensure bursars are successful and ready for the expectations of a modern workplace. It includes:

. 100% cover of academic costs;

. psychosocial support;

. bursar development programme;

. possible absorption into Sasol (for STEM candidates); and

. access to Sasol, including a call centre.
