Pooling resources to benefit students

Santam Bursary

Santam, South Africa’s premier short-term insurance company and 2019 top employer, celebrated its 100th birthday in 2018. To commemorate this milestone, Santam launched a Skills Development Academy and started a new bursary programme, administered by StudyTrust.

Beneficiaries of this prestigious full-cost bursary programme will, if selected, go on to participate in the Santam graduate programme after graduation.

The intention is that participants in the bursary and graduate programme will eventually qualify as relationship managers and underwriters in the short-term insurance industry. If they are selected they will be obliged to work for Santam for the number of years sponsored.
