Nedbank is committed to the future of South Africa and that future belongs to you, the youth of our great nation.

Being a people-centered organisation we care about people’s future and strive to assist in uplifting them by offering life-changing solutions through different programmes such as the Nedbank Bursary Fund. This has also earned us our reputation as South Africa’s green and caring bank.

Our achievements include:
  • An award as South African Bank of the Year for 2013.
  • Winning a BankSETA skills@work award in the Large Company category.
  • An award in the financial services sector from the Thutuka Bursary Fund for our commitment to assisting students of colour to study towards and qualify as chartered accountants.
  • We remain the only bank in South Africa to be included in the Dow Jones World Sustainability Index.
  • We are also a joint winner in the Financial Services category of the Climate Change Leadership Award.

In our journey to be Africa’s most admired bank by our staff, shareholders, regulators and communities, we are looking to appoint the kind of people who can Make Things Happen. Through the bursary fund we sponsor academically able students who are 'smart with heart' but do not have the financial means to study fulltime towards a first degree at a South African public university or university of technology.

The bursary covers the cost of fulltime tuition, registration, examination and compulsory charges, prescribed textbooks, university residence accommodation and meals.

Eligibility criteria include South African citizenship, Nedbank transformation targets, academic achievement (an average pass mark of at least 65% and meeting all registration criteria of a South African public university or university of technology), a financial-means test, and whether the proposed intended degree addresses an identified scarce skill at Nedbank.

Bursary applications to fund the next academic year will be accepted from 1 February to 30 April annually.

If you’re thinking of studying for a degree at a university but do not have the financial means, the Nedbank Bursary Fund is your opportunity towards attaining a better future.
