Nedbank Bursary application for 2024 academic year

Nedbank Bursary application for the 2024 academic year


Academically deserving individuals with demonstrated financial need are assisted in taking their first steps toward accomplishing their goals and earning their first college degree.


We at Nedbank believe in using our financial skills to help talented young leaders accomplish their academic goals.

The Nedbank External Bursary Programme (bursary) aims to support academically deserving students who do not have the financial wherewithal to study full-time at a South African public university or university of technology. The bursary program’s goal is to solve South Africa’s scarce-skills gaps, with a particular emphasis on green economy skills.

In a nutshell, the green economy fosters economic, environmental, and social well-being. Green-economy skills are those that focus on promoting human well-being and social equality while also considerably lowering environmental dangers and scarcity.

Reduced carbon emissions and pollution, increased energy and material efficiency, and enhancement of our natural capital are all examples of green-economy abilities.
