About Sasol Bursaries

Sasol has established a reputation in the market as an employer of choice. Our bursaries programme does not differ, it is one of the most sought after bursary programmes in South Africa.

With the scarcity of talent in South Africa and globally it is essential for Sasol to ensure continuous availability of skills to sustain our growth. The Sasol bursary programme is a critical talent lever to enable us to meet our strategic and transformation objectives. It is a talent-based scheme for South African citizens, where applicants who meet the minimum criteria may be invited to a selection interview.

The Sasol Bursary Scheme comprises a comprehensive package that covers both financial as well as developmental support throughout the study period. Bursaries awarded are for full-time university studies in engineering and science. Upon successful completion of the study period, students may be employed within the Sasol Group through our Graduate Development Programme.

All applications are done electronically, in order to speed up the selection process as well as to enable electronic tracking of applications received within a particular period. The number of bursaries awarded each year is dependent on the business need. Consequently, failure to secure a Sasol bursary is not necessarily due to poor performance on the part of the applicant but may be a reflection of insufficient business demand.

If you have what it takes to become part of this exciting team, the Sasol Bursary Programme is ready to change your life.

Please Note: Applications for Sasol bursaries opened on 4 March 2019 and will close on 30 April 2019.
