2025 Nedbank External Bursary Program for Undergraduate Students

2025 Nedbank External Bursary Program for Undergraduate Students

The Nedbank External Bursary Programme (bursary) aims to fund academically deserving students who do not have the financial means to study fulltime towards a first Undergraduate or Honours qualification at a South African public University or University of Technology.

The aim of the bursary programme is to address South Africa’s scarce-skills shortages, with a specific focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and Green Economy skills.

Green economy promotes sustaining and advancing economic, environmental and social well-being. Green-economy skills refer to those areas of study that focus on improving human well-being and social equity, while also significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. Green economy skills include the reducing of carbon emissions and pollution, increasing energy and materials efficiency and enhancing our natural capital.
