The South African Breweries Bursary Programme

SAB is committed to contributing to South Africa’s national skills development agenda. One of the ways in which this is demonstrated is by awarding academic bursaries to talented and deserving South African students. Bursary focus areas change from year to year and are impacted by the South African skills market and the SAB business need.

In addition to financial support, our bursars are also afforded the opportunity to learn more about the world of work by participating in the resolution of real business challenges, through structured summer school or vacation work.

SAB expects its bursars to maintain high academic standards and exemplary behavioural conduct during their years of study. After the successful completion of their degrees, our bursars have the opportunity to join the company full time as graduate trainees.

Bursary intake at SAB is impacted by a number of variables which include both the South African skills market and the business’ skills needs. The South African Breweries is an equal opportunity employer and all employment decisions will be in line with the company’s equity strategy.
