PPS Foundation invites Suitable Applicants to apply for Bursary Programme for 2022 in South Africa.

PPS is the largest South African company of its kind, exclusively for graduate professionals, that still embraces an ethos of mutuality, which means that it exists solely for the benefit of its members. Members receive profit allocations based on the qualifying life risk products they hold with PPS. Thus, PPS members with qualifying products could share in the profits of PPS Insurance, PPS Investments, PPS Short-Term Insurance and PPS Healthcare Administrators via annual allocations to the unique PPS Profit-Share Account. In addition, the more products members hold across these PPS businesses, the larger their percentage of earnings through the PPS Cross-Holdings Profit-Share Booster.PPS has more than 150 000 members who enjoy access to a comprehensive suite of financial and healthcare products that are specifically tailored to meet the needs of graduate professionals.

The PPS Foundation is inviting students to apply for bursary funding, for the 2022 academic year. Bursaries will be awarded for degree studies within STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields, which are scarce and critical sectors in the country. Bursaries are also available for studies within the Humanities field.

Bursaries will be awarded based on 2 main criteria: financial need and academic performance. The bursary is available from the 1st year of study, through to Honours level.
The bursary will provide cover for the following expenses: tuition fees, text books, meals and accommodation at university residence. Students will also receive access to other resources, to reduce the challenges of the learning and teaching experience.

Bursary recipients in the 1st year of study will be required to attend on-campus contact support sessions, facilitated by the PPS Foundation, at certain times throughout the year.

Bursary recipients are required to submit their statement of results at the end of each semester, as soon as they are received, in order to continue receiving funding.

Candidates can also read about previous PPS bursary recipients, their experiences with the PPS bursary and where they are now.
