IMESA offers a bursary scheme for full-time studies in the field of Civil Engineering.  Other engineering disciplines may be considered at the discretion of the Executive Council of IMESA.

The aims of the scheme are: 

  • to provide financial assistance to students who would otherwise not be able to afford to study
  • to recognize the achievements of students and prospective students who are dependents of IMESA members

The bursary is offered to students who are already registered for full time studies at a recognized tertiary educational institution in South Africa and have successfully completed their mid-year year exams.  Bursary grants apply for the following year of study (i.e. second year or further).  The bursary covers tuition fees and books, and is paid to the relevant educational tertiary institution. A mentor is appointed and students are encouraged to participate in IMESA activities.

Applications can be submitted from June each year and must be received at the IMESA Head Office by the closing date in September. Bursaries will be granted after a full evaluation process and at the discretion of the Executive Committee of IMESA.  Successful applicants will be notified before the end of the year.
