Afrisam Bursary- Financing the Education of Future Leaders

Afrisam is a leading manufacturer and supplier of construction materials. The company has operations in South Africa, Tanzania, Lesotho, Botswana and Swaziland.

For many South African students, having access to tertiary education represents a way for them to improve their standard of living. It represents a way for them to develop personally and to fast-track their careers.

Tertiary education yields monetary benefits and gives individuals financial freedom. This often allows individuals to improve their living standards.

For many students this means either getting a student loan or applying for a bursary. About 7% of South Africa’s gross domestic product (at least 20% of the total state expenditure) goes towards education. The country’s government strives to provide better quality education for all, so as to stimulate economic growth and empowerment of the nations’ citizens. The government’s efforts are supported by the private sector. Tertiary education also equips individuals with the diligence required to keep up with the demands of continuous education.

Through the Afrisam Bursary, students interested in pursuing a career in Engineering or related fields can get the finance they need to meet their education needs.
