AWCA Bursary Recipients

Since its inception in 2005, the AWCA Bursary Programme has grown in leaps and bounds, and assisted 124 aspiring accountants who otherwise would not have afforded university. The objective of the programme has been to offer support to black female students who aspire to qualify as CAs, not only in the form of financial backing, but also in the camaraderie that comes with being part of a group that has faced similar pursuits in their careers and lives. All bursary students are given access to AWCA Mentorship, Roundtable and Celebrate Success initiatives. They receive tutoring and guidance where needed, so as to ensure their academic progress, as well as as to build and strengthen their leadership and other social skills. The AWCA insists on maintaining a close relationship with each of our bursary students. They are required to join the student chapters at their respective universities, which offers yet another mode of support for them, as well as instilling in them the culture of identifying, nurturing and leading future generations.
