SAICA Thuthuka Bursary Fund
Established in 2005 by South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA), the Thuthuka Bursary assists disadvantaged African and coloured students who want to study to become CAs(SA).
A bursary fund like none other, Thuthuka’s model covers more than just tuition, books, meals, residence fees and accommodation. The programme follows an integrated and holistic approach to ensure success, and students are also provided with “wrap around” support including
** Academic support, including various academic enrichment programmes such as additional tutorials, study skills workshops and more
** Social and emotional support
** Work-readiness and life skills training
** Mentoring and counselling
** Access to dedicated programme manager exposure to experienced chartered accountants and business leaders as mentors
This model makes Thuthuka students more successful than their counterparts. It is also this approach that makes Thuthuka students ready to face the challenges of the workplace.
You qualify to apply to join the Thuthuka programme if you
** are a South African citizen
** are Black African or Coloured
** are either in Grade 12, have been out of school (with Matric) for no more than two years or are a university student studying a CA-stream BCom degree
** have obtained at least 60% (5 or above on the NSC scale of achievement) in Mathematics in Grade 11 (Maths Literacy and Technical Maths learners are NOT considered)
** have applied (or are in the process of applying) for a BCom Accounting (CA-stream) degree at a SAICA-accredited university offering the Thuthuka programme.
