SGPS Bursary Program

If you have incurred an unexpected or sudden emergency expense due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, you are likely eligible for an emergency bursary. Please consult the Bursary Guide attached here, for the documentation required to process your application. Funds are limited and applications are processed on a first come, first served basis.

Due to recent measures that the SGPS has implemented to curb the spread of COVID-19, the SGPS will no longer be issuing physical cheques. As such, we will need you to provide your direct deposit banking information in order to process your application. Please use caution when sharing and storing your banking information and please consult this link on how to protect yourself from falling victim to fraud.

Due to the reduced service capacity of the SGPS at this time, we will work as fast as possible to ensure you receive a timely response and a prompt service. For additional information, please contact Vice President Finance and Services at

The SGPS Bursary Program closed on April 5, 2021 at 11:59 pm to allow for our end of the year accounting. The program will reopen in May 2021.
