Shoprite is still accepting bursary applications for the 2019 academic year.
Trainee Accountant Mpilo Sicwebu was a Shoprite bursary holder for the full duration of his university career at Wits.
Accounting (first and second year), Logistics, IT and Data Sciences as well as Retail Business Management students have a chance at being awarded a bursary of up to R70,000 from Africa’s biggest retailer by completing an online application.
Last year some 286 students benefited from the Shoprite bursary programme, which translated to an investment in excess of R15 million.
Each bursary comes with a work-back agreement, which would see the successful applicant assured of a job at the largest private sector employer in the country once they’ve graduated.
It is not only accounting students that benefit from a structured programme once they join the Group. A graduate programme is rolled out to all bursary holders employed by the retailer upon graduation.
