Public Works holds Bursary Awards ceremony, 12 Jan

The Department of Public Works cordially invites you to its 5th annual bursary awards ceremony for 30 deserving 2017 matriculants interested in studying careers in the built industry.

The bursaries form part of the Department’s mandate to transform the built industry and invest in young people studying towards careers in the built industry. They are also part of the built environment skills pipeline strategy adopted by the DPW which is aimed at addressing the built environment skills shortages.

On the day, Public Works Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko will award the bursaries worth R130 000 per recipient, per year to the successful grade 12 learners who are mostly from rural, township and disadvantaged schools throughout the country.

The event will also recognise artisans and professionals who participated in the Artisan Development Programme and the Young Professional Programme .
