JB Marks Education Trust Fund invites Students to Apply for the Bursary Programme 2022
- Location: South Africa
- Closing Date: 01 July 2021
Every year, the JB Marks Education Trust Fund invites undergraduate and postgraduate students to apply for their bursary award. The bursary is available to NUM members and their dependents (including children and spouses). There will be 200 bursaries awarded for undergraduate studies and 50 bursaries awarded for postgraduate studies.
Bursaries will be awarded for studies in critical fields only (as defined and approved by the Board of Trustees) will be accepted.
The value of the bursary is determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the field of study, and will be awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis due to a limitation on funding.
Successful candidates will be contacted with an acceptance letter (via physical delivery, post or email), as well as to all NUM national branches. If you do not receive any correspondence or acceptance letter by 31 December 2021, and your name is not on the NUM regional list, regard your application as unsuccessful.
Please note the following terms and conditions before applying:
- The bursary award can NOT be used to pay off existing study loans or debts.
- If students drop out of their studies within the first 6 months, they will be required to pay back the bursary.
- If students change their course of study or their institution after the bursary has been awarded, the bursary will be immediately withdrawn.
- If students receive study funding from any other source, the bursary award will be cancelled and the student will be required to pay back the bursary.
Applicants must satisfy the following minimum entry criteria before applying (please note that failure to satisfy all the requirements will lead to your application not being considered):
- You must be a NUM member OR a dependent of a NUM member (including children and spouses)
- You must be studying towards an undergraduate qualification

- You must NOT currently be in receipt of any other funding
