About Aurecon Bursaries 2020-2021
Aurecon’s R90,000 per annum bursary fund is meant for deserving students in various South African’s approved universities with excellent leading and innovating abilities as well as a willingness and passion to involve in shaping Aurecon’s business presences.
This merit-based bursary scheme is not only helping those current and future students’ academic-related costs but also help in providing practical-based training to further enhance their working capabilities once they graduate and obliged to serve Aurecon for one year times their funded study periods.
To ensure that it continually gives bursaries for the right students, Aurecon has a team of Group Bursary Co-Ordinators who are responsible for monitoring each recipient’s yearly academic performance. That way, should a recipient’s academic performance become satisfactory, they will have rights to renew Aurecon’s bursary every year. Other than doing their monitoring responsibilities, these bursary co-ordinators are also supporting each bursary recipient’s growth during their study period and helping to ensure their well-being to be taken care of.
