Apply for Funza Lushaka bursary online on October 5

The Department of Basic Education, under the guidance of the State Information Technology Agency (Sita), has undergone a process to migrate the Funza Lushaka Online Registration System to a more fluid and effective online system which will go live on October 5.

The modernised system will allow for more seamless registration of candidates on the front end while allowing for improved selection, monitoring and placement of candidates and beneficiaries while further strengthening identification of defaulting bursars and reinforcing the monitoring of the NSFAS distribution process.

As a key lever towards improving the overall quality of teaching, the Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi-year programme with a core focus to promote teaching as a profession. Bursaries are made available to enable eligible students to complete a teaching qualification in an area of national priority. Recipients of these bursaries will be required to teach at a public school for the same number of years that they received the bursary.

“We are excited about the modernised system, we have experienced many challenges in fully achieving the high ambitions we have for the administration of the bursary programme.

“In moving into a new era, we are confident the system will allow for an improved ecosystem and management of the bursary programme,” said director of the Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme Gerrit Coetzee.

Current and prospective candidates are encouraged to visit the Funza Lushaka website on October 5 to apply for the 2019 Funza Lushaka intake.
