SCHOLARSHIPS and bursaries address the concerns of students who are unable to finance their studies. Financial worries should not plague our hardworking students at any of the country's universities. Their only concern should be furthering their education and finding their niche.

SANRAL is committed to developing students who express an interest in civil engineering and its related fields. The agency offers bursaries and scholarships to support these students and learners, who will become integral to South Africa's infrastructure development in the future.


The ninth annual induction to welcome and congratulate new scholarship and bursary holders in the Eastern Cape was held in May, at SANRAL's Port Elizabeth offices. It was also attended by parents, candidates from the Training Excellence Academy and senior SANRAL staff. A highlight was the
