The Council for Geoscience Bursaries
The Council for Geoscience offers bursaries covering tuition,
accommodation and books for four years to undergraduates, as well as to
students wishing to obtain postgraduate qualifications. Matric (Std 10)
level maths and physical science, both on higher grade, are required to
qualify for enrolment at university, while these subjects on standard
grade will qualify for entrance to a technicon.
Bursaries are considered for persons wishing to study geology, geophysics, engineering geology and palaeontology.
NOTE: No applications will be accepted prior to the yearly
advertisements for bursaries. Advertisements are generally published in
the major South African newspapers during October / November each year.
Holders of bursaries will be guided in their choice of subjects in order
to meet the Council’s requirements.
