Arts and Culture bursaries on offer

2016-10-12 06:00

THE KwaZulu-Natal Department of Arts and Culture is offering bursaries to students who are eager to pursue a career in the arts and Culture related areas.
The department is offering bursaries in jewellery design, fine art, graphic design, languages, performing and non performing arts, anthropology, restoration and conservation, and archival studies.

Youth with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Funds are limited and there is no guarantee that all applicants will be successful.
The bursaries will cover full-time studies only at public higher education institutions, and covers tuition fees, meals or stipends, accommodation, and prescribed textbooks where necessary.
Students are responsible for their own admission to a tertiary institution and accommodation within a university’s residence.

Preference will be given those who pursue studies at institutions within KwaZulu-Natal.
Bursaries will be awarded to those who choose to study at public higher education institutions, unless their chosen course is only offered at private institutions.

Successful recipients will enter into a contract with the department for a number of years equivalent to the duration of the period of study.
They may be required to serve the department for the same number of years specified in the bursary contract, unless stated otherwise.

To qualify for the bursaries, students must possess a matric/grade 12 certificate, be between the ages of 18 and 35, and reside in KwaZulu-Natal.
Students must also have a provisional acceptance letter from a public institution of higher learning, and willing to study courses in the fields indicated above.
Students who are currently studying in the indicated arts fields above are also eligible to apply.

To apply for the bursaries, students must fill out a bursary application form available from Operation Sukuma Sakhe war rooms, Department of Education district offices, municipality offices, and student funding offices at higher education institutions.
The advertisement and forms are also available to download from the KZN Arts and Culture website www.kzndac.gov.za

Students are advised to fill out application forms carefully and correctly. Last year, applicants submitted incomplete applications without the necessary documentation, such as copies of their IDs and proof of residence. Applicants also neglected to disclose information regarding family income, or the whereabouts and income of the second parent.

The closing date for applications is 30 October. Only successful applicants will be contacted. If you have not been contacted within four months of the closing date, please accept that your application was unsuccessful.

For more information please contact: Lethukuthula Mtshali 081 037 8321.
