Qualified recipients of the bursary must request placement in a province of their choice. The provincial education department (PED) concerned will determine whether there is suitable post available. If there is not, the applicant may be placed in a PED that does have suitable vacancies. Please note that bursars cannot choose the school in which they would like to be placed.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Applications for the Funza Lushaka bursary in 2010 are closed. The application facility will be available again towards the end of 2010 to accept applications for the bursary in 2011.
