SANA Bursary Programme
The Green Industry is more than just the study of Horticulture. It includes a variety of employment opportunities all related to growing things. Bursaries are available on application to students who have successfully completed all modules of their first Academic year of study.
Who Can Apply?
In order to be considered for a bursary, Horticulture and Landscaping students must have successfully completed and passed their first-year modules of study in full and have an average of over 60%. We do not provide bursaries for the practical training required for the qualification.
How to Apply?
A motivation of no less than 150 word needs to accompany all applications to be considered for a bursary. Bursary Applications can be submitted via email to elana [AT] sana.co.za or by Fax 086 580 9793
The following questions must form the basis of your motivation along with additional points
** How do you see your career in the green industry developing?
** Have you done any community volunteer work? If so, where and for how long and what was your experience of it?
** Have you been involved in the horticultural industry? If so, were you a volunteer or employed and what where the main lessons learnt through that experience?
** Have you visited any nurseries? If so, where and what would you say was the most impressionable?
