Bursaries are awarded to address future skill requirements in the financial sector, as well as in South Africa as a whole. In 2021, the focus of our bursary awards for new bursars will be limited to qualifications in line with Green Economy skills. Green economy skills refer to those areas of study that focus on improved human well-being and social equity, while also significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. This includes reducing carbon emissions and pollution, increasing energy and materials efficiency and enhancing natural capital. The Green Economy promotes a triple bottom line: sustaining and advancing economic, environmental and social well-being.
