The Gauteng City-Region Academy (GCRA) is a branch of the Gauteng Department of Education that aims to promote skills development in Gauteng, South Africa. This is done through the establishment of leaderships, internships, bursaries (GCRA bursary), skills programs, and career guidance programs. The Gauteng youth, business sectors, and Gauteng government employees are the major beneficiaries of the GCRA.

The GCRA has developed an Unemployment database in order to identify participants for development programs. The employment opportunities will come from Gauteng Provincial Government departments, municipalities, government agencies, and the private sectors. Interviews, as well as other application procedures and results, will be used as a basis for program selection. The aim is to build a skilled, capable and ethical workforce for the region.

Benefit from Gauteng Academy Bursary

GCRA is offering financial assistance to students who want to continue their education but lack the resources to cover the cost of study. The GCRA bursary program is intended for both undergraduate students and those in post-graduate studies who reside within the province of Gauteng. Students can be in any field of study. As long as they meet the eligibility requirements (detailed in the next section), they can apply for the bursary funding.

Once awarded, the bursary will cover the following expenses:

  • Registration fees
  • Tuition fees
  • Accommodation cost
  • Books
  • Laptop

Those staying in residence will receive a maximum amount of R 65,000. Students residing off-campus or in private accommodation will receive a maximum of R 47,000. GCRA will calculate the final amount each bursar will receive.

Shortlisted candidates will get notification regarding their selection within 3 to 4 weeks of the closing date. If you didn’t receive an email or phone call by then, consider your application to be unsuccessful.

Eligibility Required for Gauteng Academy Bursary

To be selected for the bursary award, you must fulfill the eligibility criteria. Since there are a limited number of bursaries on offer, GCRA cannot award them to everyone who’s applying. The criteria are in place to select the appropriate candidates. Applicants that do not meet all of the requirements do not get consideration. Therefore, always cross-check before applying.
