Tertiary education is part of life’s journey and it doesn’t come cheap.

But over nine students across South Africa could see themselves winning a year of free tuition at the tertiary institution of their choice.

The nine students who should be from nine different provinces - could see their accounts looking healthy and life becoming more rewarding during 2019.

Standard Bank is offering the bursaries to students and they will be randomly drawing the names of nine winners and making cash payments on their behalves, directly to the universities concerned to help cover annual study fees.

“So, to help make life even more enjoyable Standard Bank will be offering any student (aged 18 and up) who signs up for a Student Achiever account before 30 April this year, the opportunity to automatically enter a national competition draw that could see his or her fees for the entire year being paid by the bank”.

“Standard Bank will be offering any student (aged 18 and up) who signs up for a Student Achiever account before 30 April this year, the opportunity to automatically enter a national competition draw that could see his or her fees for the entire year being paid by the bank,” Head of Marketing: Personal and Business Banking at Standard Bank Lindy-Lou Alexander said.

Alexander said this will be a real boost to the winning students, particularly those who come from backgrounds where their families are hard-pressed to finance a tertiary education.

According to Alexander their objective is to enable students to manage their first real entry into a world where self-sufficiency is becoming a reality.
