imatu bursary scheme


imatu bursary schemeIt is with great pleasure that we are able to announce the continuation of the IMATU/LA Health/Discovery Bursary Scheme for the 2018 academic year.

As you are aware, IMATU, in association with LA Health and Discovery Health, has established the IMATU/LA Health/Discovery Bursary Scheme as part of our on-going commitment to the well-being of our members and their families.

The aim of the Bursary Scheme is to provide financial assistance to IMATU members, and the children of IMATU members, in order to facilitate the pursuance and obtaining of a tertiary qualification.

Due to the escalating cost of tertiary education, the sponsors of this scheme have taken a collective decision to reduce the number of bursaries awarded, in favour of increasing the Rand value allocated per bursary.

Bursary amounts will be granted as follows:

(a) 10 bursaries at R 20 000 each.
(b) 40 bursaries at R 10 000 each.

A maximum of 50 bursaries will therefore be granted annually.

Bursary Scheme applications will be accepted from 2 January 2018. Download and complete the forms attached to this post or on our website

All completed applications must be submitted to Ms Trix van Heerden via fax: (012) 460 8444 or email:

Applications will close on 16 February 2018 at 16h00.
