Bursaries Available 2018
Bursaries are financial assistance given to students for further study for either degree, post graduate studies or both. Bursaries are awarded on a financial needs basis and are linked to satisfactory academic achievements with a solid academic track record at school and/or university.
Students who are awarded a bursary are required to serve a training contract with the specific office who awarded the bursary on completion of their studies. Bursaries have conditions attached to them and once students have completed their studies, students will have to work for a period of three years.
BDOS’s amount of money can be for that of a full bursary or that of a half bursary. Our bursaries do not cover all study expenses and only covers registration fees, tuition fees and books for each year of study. Students have to therefore be prepared to meet some of the costs.
Applications are collected and processed thoughout the course of the year, due to the number of applicants, applicants may only recieve feedback towards the end of the year.
Bursary applicants should meet the following criteria:
Be planning to study towards a Chartered Accountancy qualification (learners/scholars);
Commitment to study towards a Chartered Accountancy qualification with majors in accounting and auditing;
Be studying at a university which offers South African Institute of Chartered Accountants’ (SAICA) accredited programmes through to Honours / CTA level.
(Candidates who meet these criteria will be shortlisted for interviews and psychometric assessments before a decision is made)
