Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal recognizes the scarcity of skills within the Building Industry and acknowledges the sad reality that the financial demands of tertiary education, make it near impossible for many South African school leavers to reach their full potential. It was to this end the Association introduced its Bursary fund in 2015, to help financially needing students reach their potential without being hindered by financial constraints and to help address the skills dearth hampering the industry.
Each year the Association welcomes new applicants.
Bursaries are intended to encourage candidates to enter programmes leading to occupational qualifications required to address scarce skills within the Building Industry.
Preference is given to South African citizens residing in KwaZulu-Natal and to disciplines relating specifically to the building industry.
Bursaries may be awarded for, but not limited to:
- National certificate qualifications
- Degrees, or any other related qualification as approved by the Associations’ Bursary Committee
Study programmes must take place at a registered institution of learning and may include programmes offered by the Master Builders Training Academy.
Bursaries are granted for a one year period and may only be renewed upon proof of satisfactory progress.
The main criteria used in the selection of successful applicants are financial need, academic ability and career-oriented study programmes.
Other selection criteria include University of Technology and University students who study full-time, with a pass mark in all their subjects, and who follow career-oriented programmes that are in demand in the building sector.
