The Nedbank External Bursary Programme (bursary) aims to fund academically deserving students who do not have the financial means to study full-time towards a first undergraduate degree or diploma at a South African public university or university of technology. The aim of the Nedbank External Bursary Programme is to address South Africa’s scarce skills shortages, with a specific focus on green economy skills.

In short, a green economy promotes sustaining and advancing economic, environmental, and social well-being. Green-economy skills refer to those areas of study that focus on improving human well-being and social equity, while also significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. Green-economy skills include the reducing of carbon emissions and pollution, increasing energy and materials efficiency and enhancing our natural capital.
