AS part of its Operation Switch On bursary campaign The IIE’s Varsity College Port Elizabeth campus will be giving registered non-governmental organisations the opportunity to apply for a bursary to register for a short learning programme at The IIE’s Business School at Varsity College.

Several non-governmental organisations (NGOs) participated in the campus’ recent NGO open day, a day which serves as a platform for NGOs to interact with students and staff, informing them about the services they offer and what their organisation represents.

Likewise, students and staff had the opportunity to explore volunteer opportunities close to their hearts which then provide a way to give back positively to the community.

IIE Bachelor of Arts third year student, Robyn Steytler, said, “When meeting so many inspirational people who dedicate their lives to such great causes, it gives me hope that humanity is more than just a word in the dictionary.”

Interested parties may send a motivational letter as to how they will benefit from the short learning programme plus their CV via e-mail to student relations manager Jaci Howell at jhowell@varsitycollege.co.za by Monday, March 25.

Applicants will also be provided with a list of relevant short learning programmes.

The bursary forms part of the college’s corporate social investment initiative aimed at facilitating community based skills development which could enhance skills and ultimately service delivery for the NGO/NPO’s staff.
