The Port Elizabeth Express together with Richfield Institute gave two lucky readers the opportunity to win a bursary, worth R25 000 each.

The winners of the bursaries are Kendill Clarke and Kenneth Harris.

“I am very overwhelmed in winning the Richfield bursary and I cannot explain to you how ecstatic I am for receiving this blessing. I have never won anything before and feel like God has blessed me because life is a little tough for me,” said Clarke, who lives in Algoa Park.

“Since I was a child, I have wanted to go into technology, but I never had the means, so I would like to thank you so much for recommending me.”

Clarke’s chosen field would be anything in the line of Information Technology.

Marisa Harris entered the competition on behalf of her husband.

“I would like to enter my husband Kenneth Harris for this competition as he has been dreaming to apply for the Production and Operation Mangement Course,” she wrote in her motivational letter to PE Express.

“We have two small children and paying for education is a luxury at this point in our lives. This would enable him to have a brighter future and provide a bigger future for our children. He is a dedicated, hard worker and would do his best in such a programme.”

The Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology is an affordable Higher Education Institution and has been operating successfully for the past 28 years.

Richfield has 33 higher education campuses and 43 TVET campuses nationally.

The institution has been nationally and internationally recognised for its pioneering efforts in improving the quality of teaching for learning by integrating technology into the curriculum to improve success rates.

Richfield provides students with free access to high-tech devices and data networks – creating a “greener” culture of moving away from the excessive use of paper.

Richfield is fully accredited to offer distance learning programmes.

Richfield has assisted well over a quarter million South Africans to graduate with sought-after qualifications to enter the job market. Richfield does not receive any subsidies, grants or allowances.

Richfield’s CEO, Jay Ramnundlall, emphasised that corporate South Africa should start looking at institutions like Richfield to which they sponsor bursaries, rather than limit their choices to public universities.

A feather in its cap is when Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology (RGIT) won the National Business of the Year Award for 2017.
