PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Bursaries
PwC created a bursary scheme which is available to students studying towards a Chartered Accountant (CA) degree at a South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) accredited university.
The programme aims to attract young people who have the potential for the firm. Bursaries do not cover the full tuition, accommodation and book expenses and as a result, applicants must be prepared to pay a portion of their tuition costs at their own expense.
Upon graduation, bursary holders will be required to work for PwC on a training contract where duration depends on the value of the bursary awarded.
