MISA’s National Executive Council increased the annual study bursaries so that the Union can assist 150 children of our valued members to help fund their tertiary studies from 1 January 2023.
Martlé Keyter, Chief Executive Officer: Operations, says the Union knows that our children are our future. This benefit assisted many members' children to achieve their dreams over the years.
“MISA Bursaries are part of the Union’s commitment to empower more learners to study after matric. MISA believes it is vital to help build skills for future generations to come. The Union is well aware of the cost of education and that many of our members cannot afford to pay for the tertiary studies of their children. With this benefit, MISA also assists members with this financial burden,” says Keyter.
This benefit pays up to R12 500 each to help fund the tertiary studies of children of members. Claims for this benefit can only be submitted from 1 January 2024 for a period of 13 weeks on a first-come-first-served basis. These bursaries are subject to specific criteria and the member needs to have a minimum of 5 consecutive years membership.
