The ubank Bursary Programme was introduced in 2009 and aimed at supporting the children of mine workers in gaining relevant skills and knowledge, for them to seamlessly be integrated into our country’s economy. The Bursary Programme allows the Bank to take its commitment of community development through education to the next level – funding tertiary studies. The bursary programme is open to children of unionised members of South Africa / Southern Africa.
Besides the bursary programme, the students are also given the valuable opportunity of engaging in vocational work managed by ubank career coaches. The acquisition of academic knowledge balanced with practical work experience is seen by ubank as the most vital preparation needed to help the country’s next generation of leaders. To add, the bursary programme helps the children to become meaningful and active participants in the country’s economy.
