SASA targets black youths for sugarcane bursaries: 30 November 2016


The South African Sugarcane Association, or SASA, wants to give black youths who completed matric recently or who are to complete in 2016  bursaries.

“Many of the young black children living within the rural sugarcane growing regions dream of being engineers, extension officers and agricultural economists but few have the access and, or, the finance to complete their studies,” the association said.

“The objective of the program is to increase the number of high potential learners from socially and academically disadvantaged background by providing access to quality education and training in the field of engineering, agriculture and science”.
