Sasol Foundation urges high-achieving learners from low-income houses to apply for its bursary programme as soon as possible because the deadline is fast approaching – 31 August 2019. The Foundation’s all-inclusive bursaries enable you to study for an undergraduate degree at a South African university or university of technology in the 2020 academic year.
Applicants from the general public can apply for bursaries to study selected STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) courses. Qualifying children of Sasol employees and Sasol Khanyisa/Inzalo shareholders as well as applicants from Sasol fence-line communities can apply for bursaries to study for STEM and non-STEM (nursing, accounting, economics) degrees.
Applicants must be South Africans citizens and meet the minimum university requirements to study at a South African public university or university of technology for 2020. Learners currently in Grade 12 must use their final Grade 11 results to apply. The Sasol Foundation will only select learners from homes with a combined annual household income of under R600 000.
“The Sasol Foundation has, to date, helped more than 1,500 young people, mostly from township and rural areas, to harness their potential and follow their dreams through our bursaries,” said Dr Bulelwa Keke, Sasol Foundation Programme Manager. “Our goal is not simply to help them fund their studies, but to provide all the support they need to succeed in their degrees.”
The bursaries cover:
- 100% of academic costs
- Psychosocial support
- Bursar development programme
- Possible absorption into Sasol (for STEM candidates)
- Access to Sasol, including a call centre: 0860 106 235
You have until 31 August 2019 to apply at https://sasolbursaries.com/welcome. Harness your potential and apply now. You can also call 0860 106 235 to find out more information.
Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts that relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return, executing our growth projects (including LCCP), oil and gas reserves and cost reductions, including in connection with our BPEP, RP and our business performance outlook. Words such as “believe”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “intend", “seek”, “will”, “plan”, “could”, “may”, “endeavour”, “target”, “forecast” and “project” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report on Form 20-F filed on 28 August 2018 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
