Shoprite bursary applications for 2020 now open

| Social Responsibility

The Shoprite Group has opened bursary applications for the 2020 academic year and is inviting top students studying scarce skills including Information Technology (IT), Chartered Accounting, Supply Chain Management and Logistics, Pharmacy and Retail Business Management to apply.

Applications from IT and Data Engineering students are especially sought after given the critical skills shortage in this sector.

Comprehensive bursaries are awarded to assist with tuition, books and accommodation fees. Each bursary comes with a work-back agreement, which would see the successful applicant ensured a job opportunity upon graduation.

As a leading employer in South Africa with more than 147 000 employees, the Group offers hard-working and ambitious individuals exciting jobs at its various offices across Africa as well as sought-after opportunities such as its Data Science Academy apprenticeship programme.

During the 2019 academic year, the Group awarded just over R17 million in bursaries to 282 students, including 178 women, 210 previously disadvantaged students and 59 students from other African countries.

Visit the Shoprite Holdings website today to apply for a bursary for the 2020 academic year.
