The Nedbank External Bursary Programme focuses on funding academically worthy students who do not have the financial resources to attend lectures fulltime towards their first undergraduate degree or diploma at a South African public university or university of technology. The goal of the bursary programme is to address South Africa’s scarce-skills shortages, with a particular concentration on green economy skills.

Briefly, green economy promotes continuos and advancing economic, environmental and social well being.
