Fair Price Employee Children's Bursary Fund (ECBF)

As part of our commitment towards our employees, Fair Price is pleased to announce our partnership with The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF), who will be offering university bursaries to the children of Fair Price employees.

Terms & Conditions: • The Fair Price Employee Children's Bursary Fund (ECBF) is open to the children, siblings and spouses of current employees of Fair Price South Africa.

• At the time of application, only Employees who have worked for 1 year or more with the company will qualify to apply for their children, siblings and spouses.

• The Fair Price ECBF is administered by SANZAF.

• The Fair Price ECBF will only consider applicants for study at a South African University, University of Technology or registered FET College. Except for institutions offering nursing and paramedics, all other private institutions will not be considered.

• Applicants are not guaranteed funding and applications are subject to terms and conditions of the fund.

• Applicants are required to re-apply each year as funding is based on a yearly basis.

• Where successful, funding will be deposited into the accounts of the institution directly.

• Successful applicants are not guaranteed the full fees towards the cost of the course for the respective year only (i.e. 2017). Applicants will need to reapply each year and will need to satisfy any (new) criteria. The continuation of the programme is also subject to availability of funding. In other words, a successful applicant is only guaranteed a bursary for 2016 academic year.

• Amongst other things, an applicant must satisfy the minimum entry criteria to register at one of the above institutions to be considered for the Fair Price ECBF.

• The Fair Price ECBF is offered as a grant and is not repayable. However if the applicant deregisters from the institution then any amounts paid towards the course will be recouped from the employee in monthly instalments over a period of 36 months.

• In order to avoid any inadvertent bias, either in favour or against an employee, the management of Fair Price have delegated the entire processing and selection of the applicants to SANZAF. The recommendations of SANZAF will be taken as final so long as they satisfy the greater objective of empowering the children of Fair Price employees.

• SANZAF and Fair Price will not entertain any correspondence after the final decision has been made by SANZAF.

• Applications close on 15 January 2017 and successful applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by 15 February 2017.

• Applicants who may need to apply and/or pay a registration fee before the 15 February 2017 (i.e. before a decision to grant or not is made) do so at their own discretion. However, should an applicant be successful in receiving a bursary then any such application / registration fees will be refunded to the employee. Proof of payment(s) will be required.

• Successful applicants will be required to provide additional documentation as well as be interviewed.
