Mintek Engineering Bursaries Information
The aim of Mintek’s Undergraduate Bursary Programme is primarily to ensure a steady supply of trained and highly skilled technical people to meet a major portion of Mintek’s operational, research, and development manpower intake needs, and also to provide appropriately-skilled graduates to the broader South African minerals and metallurgy sector, as per Mintek’s Mission Statement.
Mintek provides bursaries for undergraduate degrees, Honours degrees and BTech diplomas. (Unfortunately Mintek does not provide bursaries to students studying towards their National Diplomas.) Bursaries cover the full payment of registration, tuition and residence fees, plus an allowance, in return for a commitment to work at Mintek on a year-for-year basis. On completion of their studies, bursars undergo an intensive training course that is aimed at turning them into career scientists.
