Bursary Summary

The Bata South Africa Toughees Bursary Scheme 2024 is now open for applications!

Closing date: 15 February 2024 [23h59] 

Toughees is inviting students to apply for their bursary competition, for the 2024 academic year. Made possible by BATA South Africa, the bursary forms part of Toughees’ “Made Tough” competition. The bursary is targeted at students in primary (Grades 1 to 7) and high school (Grades 8 to 12).

Toughees Bursary Value

Well, we called this a Bursary but it’s actually both a Bursary and a Competition… sort of. The Ten (10) winners will be announced no later than 15 March 2024. The selected winners will win their share of R200 000 in school fees, up to the value of R20 000 each.

The prize money will be paid directly to the students’ schools. The schools will need to provide Toughees an invoice stating the amount of school fees that is still outstanding, as well as the entrants’ (i.e. parent(s)/ guardian(s)) and winner’s (i.e. student’s) details.

Here are some key detail:

  • The prize will be divided equally among each student, equating to R20 000 each.
  • Should an entrant have more than one child attending a nominated school, then the allocated amount of R20 000 may be divided among each child’s fees.
  • Successful applicants will be contacted within 7 days of the closing date (this will happen no later than 15 March 2024).
