About MultiChoice Bursaries 2020-2021
MultiChoice is offering bursaries for students for students who require financial assistance in order to continue their tertiary studies in South African universities. Based in the city of Randburg, the MultiChoice Bursaries are held as a means to support the local youth through supportive education and skills mentorship. Selected awardees of the bursary will be entitled to a generous sum of financial funding that allows them to pay off almost all of their study expenses, accommodation, daily meals, prescribed study materials, and a monthly allowance.
On top of that, awardees will also be granted the change to partake in vacation work under the MultiChoice company during the students’ vacation period. This will provide them with the much needed exposure into the world of business and earn some of the knowledge that might not be able to be attained in most classroom settings. The number of MultiChoice Bursaries are awarded based on the yearly business needs that may adapt accordingly to each year. Furthermore, upon successful graduation from their studies, awardees will also need to pay back their bursary through a “year-for-a-year” employment basis.
