Transport SETA triples bursary funding for CPUT students

The Transport Education and Training Authority has tripled its bursary allocation to CPUT students in a bid to produce more graduates.

While TETA funded 14 top performing CPUT students last year, 2018 saw the number increase to 55 students. Each student will receive R71 000, which will cover tuition fees as well as expenses such as accommodation, meals and books.

The successful students are in the Faculties of Engineering, Applied Sciences as well as Business and Management Sciences. 

TETA aims to ease the lives of South African young people by funding them to complete their studies. 

The SETA’s personnel prides themselves on assisting students to fulfil their goals. TETA wants to help more South Africans gain skills and find their way into the workplace.

“We are very grateful for this support. This funding will amount to over R9 million, a much-needed boost in addressing the plight of our financially needy students,” says CPUT’s Advancement Director Calvin Maseko.
