The Sasol Bursary Scheme for 2014 is now available. The details regarding this bursary can be found below including all the necessary details. Please go through all the information before applying for this Scheme.
Sasol Bursary Scheme is a talent based scheme, as a result, only applicants who meet the minimum criteria will be invited to a selection interview. It is a comprehensive package that covers both financial as well as developmental support throughout the study period.
All applications are done electronically, not only to speed up the selection process but also to ensure fairness and electronic tracking of applications received within a particular period. For more information on how to qualify please read further.
Consequently, we give preference to those candidates with an exceptional academic record who also participate in extra curricular activities. Due consideration is also given to those individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who meet our minimum requirements. Applications for a Sasol bursary close on 28 February 2013. We prefer to receive all applications online via our online application process.
This speeds up the process and ensures comprehensive electronic tracking of all applications. We receive, on average, 5000 applications each year. These applications are screened by our recruitment office and results in between 300 and 400 individuals being invited to attend an interview. Of these, only 80 to 100 will be awarded a Sasol bursary.
The number of Sasol bursaries awarded each year is dependent on the business need. Consequently, failure to secure a Sasol bursary is not necessarily due to poor performance on the part of the applicant but may be a reflection of insufficient business demand. Sasol is a petrochemical company and hence the majority of bursaries awarded are in the engineering, science and commerce fields listed under fields of study.
