Financing and Scholarships
The ENGAGE Programme receives support from Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES). There are a limited number of scholarships for participants from Africa, Asia and South America. Not all who apply will be funded. All accepted participants are expected to pay R1000 fee when they confirm their participation. This fee should be paid by the union, but can also be paid by the individual participant.
The scholarships covers the following:
- University short course programme costs
- Tuition/fees at the University of the Witwatersrand
Day-to-day living expenses are the responsibility of the participants. The flights to and from students’ home countries have to be paid for by the participants or an organisation on their behalf.
Estimated costs, which are subject to change, if the participant is NOT covered by the scholarship:
|Accommodation||25,000.00ZAR (for two months)||1300USD*|
|Living Expenses||4000.00ZAR (per month)||250USD*|
*Please note: These are estimated US dollar costs for the duration of the ENGAGE Programme. US Dollar amounts are subject to currency fluctuations.
