Johannesburg, South Africa – Sasol Inzalo Foundation (SalF) is urging learners who have completed Grade 12 and have been admitted to an academic institution to apply for its all-inclusive bursary before the closing date, Friday 19 January 2018.
To be considered, candidates must be South African citizens and have been accepted or provisionally accepted at a South African University or University of Technology for 2018.
SalF was established in 2008 with a mandate to enable access to tertiary education opportunities for learners from low income households in South Africa and to assist in alleviating bottlenecks in the country’s schooling system. The Foundation is also involved in boosting the pool of vocational skills through its one-of-a-kind technical schools programme.
In the past, the SalF bursary programme only catered for learners studying towards a bachelor’s degree in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) related fields. This has now been revised. Owing to the pressing need to improve access to tertiary education for young learners, the Foundation has expanded its offering to allow learners to study towards careers in STEM-related and non-STEM related fields. The latter includes a career of one’s choice but exclusively for qualifying learners from Sasol fence-line communities, children of and/or Sasol Inzalo shareholders and children of Sasol employees.
The Foundation offers a comprehensive bursary which covers the cost of tuition, registration, accommodation, books, laptop, monthly stipends, optometric support, academic support as well as psycho-social to enable them to successfully complete their studies.
How to apply: Send a message with the keyword ‘Inzalo’ on our Facebook page fb.me/SasolSACareers and follow the prompts (standard data rates apply) or SMS ‘Inzalo’ to 33162 (R29 airtime required to complete the process).
Alternatively, contact the call centre on 0860 106 235 for more information about the bursary and how to apply.
Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts and relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such
forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return, executing our growth projects and cost reductions, including in connection with our Business Performance Enhancement Programme and Response Plan. Words such as "believe", "anticipate", "expect", "intend", "seek", "will", "plan", "could", "may", "endeavour", "target", "forecast" and "project" and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report on Form 20-F filed on 27 September 2016 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
