UASA awards a total of 20 (twenty) study grants annually.

Study grants 2018

It represents a once-off grant to qualifying members to enable them, or their dependents, to further their studies. In view of the focus on the skills shortage and economic growth, preference is given to those who are busy with grade studies in B.Com, B.Sc and Medical disciplines, or those studying at a technical college in the field of e.g. engineering, manufacturing and mining. Grants are awarded where students have successfully completed at least their first year's study at an accredited learning institution and who can provide satisfactory proof of enrolment after the first semester of the following year. Subject to the availability of funds, a total of twenty (20) grants are paid out per annum. Ten grants each worth R5000,00 are awarded to graduate students and ten grants worth R2500,00 each to qualifying students at a technical college. The NEC of UASA retains the right to change the scheme in part or in total as and when it deems fit to do so without any prior notification.
