South African Reserve Bank External Bursary 2024

South African citizens with the necessary qualifications are invited to apply for the South African Reserve Bank External Bursary (SARB) for the academic year 2023/2024. Candidates who are undergraduates are eligible for this program.

This Partial Funding program is an opportunity awarded to qualified South African Undergraduates students. This program is sponsored by South African Reserve Bank. The SARB, as part of addressing the severe shortage of skills in South Africa, provides scholarships and bursaries to students in relevant fields of study who are from disadvantaged backgrounds. This program is aimed at supporting bright students to complete their tertiary education.

The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) is the central bank of South Africa. It was established in 1921 after Parliament passed an act, the “Currency and Bank Act of 10 August 1920”, as a direct result of the abnormal monetary and financial conditions which World War I had brought. The SARB was only the fourth central bank established outside the United Kingdom and Europe, the others being the United States, Japan and Java. The earliest suggestions for the establishment of the Central Bank in South Africa date back to 1879. A select committee, of ten members of Parliament, was established on 31 March 1920 to examine the benefits to the national interest of the establishing of the central bank.
