Scholarship Fund for Engineering Students

Renewable Energy Scholarship Fund contributed R850 000 to develop young engineering students.

This scholarship programme enables young mechatronics and electrical engineering students from around the country to acquire the qualifications and skills demanded by this budding sector, particularly in the field of mechatronics – an inter-disciplinary field, combining traditional electrical, electronic, mechanical, control and computer engineering skills. The fund covers tuition, daily living expenses and learning expenses such as books and materials.

With the growing demand for electricity in South Africa and on the continent, we would like to play our part in helping to provide more qualified and skilled engineers as well as benefitting students from our local communities.
