BET Software Bursary 2022
The company is offering financial assistance to a certain number of students each year via BET Software bursaries. Known as the BET Dare to Dream Bursary, it is meant for students in the ICT-related fields. They can be pursuing a National Certificate, Diploma, Degree, or Postgraduate qualification.
For the academic session 2022, students must be in one of the following fields of study:
Information Technology and Information Systems
System and Network Administration
The bursary will only cover the tuition fees and registration costs. Bursars are supposed to pay for other expenses out of their own pockets.
Besides the funding, students will have a chance to engage in skill development workshops and events where they can get real-life training experience. This would prepare them to join the workforce soon after completion of the programmes.
Initially, the bursaries will be awarded for one academic year. For the next year, students will have to reapply.
As part of the bursary agreement, students will have to join the BET Graduate Programme after the completion of their studies. They will be working for the company for a duration equal to the funding duration.
To select the candidates for the bursaries, BET Software has laid out specific eligibility criteria. Anyone applying for the bursary must fulfill all the eligibility criteria first. Since the number of bursaries is limited and the company receives many applications, it rejects those that do not meet all the requirements.
The eligibility requirements for BET Software 2022 are:
Must be either pursuing or willing to pursue a National Certificate, Diploma, Degree, or Postgraduate qualification in the ICT-related field mentioned above
The duration of the qualification must be at least 12 months
Must be studying or willing to study at a recognised South African Higher Learning institution
Must have scored no less than 60% if currently studying
Fulfilling all the criteria, however, does not guarantee bursary funding. Preference is given to those who stay in proximity to the tertiary institute where they intend to study at. The list published by the company will be considered final.
