Bursaries offered in building industry

Cape Town - Applications for bursaries offered by the Master Builders Association of the Western Cape, (MBAWC) for the 2016 academic year are now open, the association said on Wednesday.

The MBAWC is a registered trade association for employers in the building industry. It has been providing bursaries for tertiary education for the past ten years.

The bursaries will cover annual tuition fees from the second year of the various courses onwards. They are available to family members and employees of MBAWC member companies wishing to pursue degree and diploma studies in construction and built-environment courses at all institutions of higher learning in the greater Cape Town metropole and Boland areas.

Applicants must be South African citizens, residing in the Cape Metropole, who have, at least, completed their first year of study and achieved good academic results.

Bursaries are valid for one year, but are renewable subject to continued satisfactory academic progress and are not refundable to the Association upon graduation.

According to John Matthews, chair of the MBAWC’s skills and Education Trust, awarding these bursaries aids in the development of the country.

"The construction industry, which is crucial in meeting the country’s infrastructure and housing needs, has the potential to generate a number of much-needed jobs, but requires skilled entrants to grow the industry and its ability to build South Africa,” he said.

The closing date for submissions is Wednesday November 25 2015. More information is available here.
