With only three weeks left before the closing date of 30 April 2024, the Shoprite Group is calling on all high-performing tertiary students enrolled for degree studies in Accounting, IT, Agricultural Sciences, Biological Sciences and more, to apply for its comprehensive bursary programme for the 2024 and 2025 academic years. 

Here’s what some of our previous recipients have to say: 

Precious Moabi 

Precious (26) from Taung in North West was appointed as a SAP Functional Analyst through the Group’s apprenticeship programme after completing her honours degree in BCom Information Systems at the North-West University. 


Harry Makobe 

Harry (23) from Olievenhoutbosch, Centurion, received funding for the final year of his B-Com Supply Chain Management degree at the University of Pretoria. The Group also funded his post-graduate degree and joined the supply chain graduate programme in 2023. He was later appointed as Store Replenishment Analyst. 

Rachel-Leigh Audier 

Rachel-Leigh (25) from Germiston is currently a Trainee Accountant on her way to becoming a Chartered Accountant after the Group funded her Bachelor of Accounting degree and post-graduate studies at the University of Johannesburg. 


The comprehensive bursary covers tuition and accommodation. Employment after graduation is guaranteed, giving beneficiaries a seamless entry into the business allowing them to learn from the industry’s top talent, experts and mentors, as well as the option to explore several career opportunities within the Group. In addition, bursary holders receive a monthly grocery allowance and enjoy access to the Shoprite Employee Wellness programme. 

The retailer is the largest private sector employer in South Africa and one of the top graduate employers in the country. In 2023, for the third consecutive year, the Group was awarded the Gradstar Student’s Choice Award for Employer of Choice in the retail sector. 

The Group invests around R15 million towards the education of over 200 students each financial year.
