The Funza Lushaka Bursary Programme is a multi-year programme that promotes teaching as a profession. The bursaries are provided to students who may complete a teaching qualification in an area recognized as a priority.

The Funza Lushaka online application form has been open for students who wish to apply for financial assistance to further their studies for a teaching degree. To qualify for the bursary, you need to be studying or wish to study a Bachelor of Education (BEd) or a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) at a public university.
