Subsidising the cost of tertiary education of employees.

Bursaries serve as incentives to employers to develop employees, through study at Higher Educational institutions, in areas of scarce skills in the food and beverages manufacturing industry. See Grant Funding Policy for the list of scarce skills click here and areas linked to the development of these skills. If the list provided in does not include an area of study that supports the development of a specific scarce skill, a motivation for additional areas of study can be provided in the bursary grant application form. The grant is not intended to cover the complete cost of study, but rather to assist companies in making an investment in tertiary education.
