Vbkom Bursaries 2024: Financial Aid for Undergraduate Degrees, Honor Degrees, or BTech Diplomas

About Vbkom
With a vision to provide success to mining companies all throughout the African continent, five mining engineers created VBKOM in 2008. To do this, it would be necessary to create a highly qualified consulting company that would be able to provide both domestic and foreign clients specialized technical mining consulting services.

As a result of their success and development in the early stages, the firm was able to expand its basic offering of mining engineering services. The smart inclusion of important supplementary services helped the business to go even further and enhance customer assistance across the whole value chain. To better serve their large clientele in the region, VBKOM built a second office in Kathu in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa in 2015. Being completely available to their customers is essential since they are continually striving to improve the quality of their services.

About the Vbkom Bursaries 2024
Vbkom is offering bursary programmes for individuals who need immediate financial aid to pursue their undergraduate degrees, honor degrees, or BTech diplomas. The Vbkom Bursaries is an open-access program that accepts applicants from all backgrounds. You will be given the assistance you need as an awardee to pursue your academic degree. You are more than welcome to try out for this chance if you exhibit excellent academic performance and important traits as a student.

Selected recipients of the bursaries will be entitled to full payment of registration costs and tuitions fees. As long as the recipient passes the registered topics and continues to adhere to the terms of the Vbkom bursary contract, the scholarship is granted for the duration of the prescribed course.

As part of the bursary programme, you will be required to fulfill the following bursary obligations:

  • After graduation, the bursar has a year-for-year service commitment to Vbkom, meaning that for every academic year (or portion of an academic year) for which the bursar is sponsored, the bursar must serve one year at Vbkom
  • At the conclusion of the first, second, and third academic years, Vbkom employees are required to perform fully compensated vacation labor.

Sadly, Vbkom does not offer bursary programmes to students pursuing National Diplomas.
