About NEET (National Economic Education Trust):

NEET, the National Economic Education Trust, is a non-profit organization founded in the early 1990s to provide educational support to disadvantaged students in South Africa. NEET focuses on students who excel in Science and Mathematics. The organization initially received a government grant of R30 million and, over two decades, has distributed almost R44 million in bursaries and financial support to over 5000 South African students.

In addition to providing bursary awards, NEET offers continuous support to students during their studies through an online Student Management Portal. NEET also facilitates internships and job placements for students after they graduate.

About the NEET Bursary Program:

The NEET bursary program aims to assist disadvantaged students by providing funding for their tertiary education and offering ongoing support throughout their studies. The program also helps students find job placements or internship opportunities. Bursaries are awarded in the following fields of study:

  • Accounting
  • Agricultural Training and Development
  • Science
  • Technology

Students who receive NEET bursaries not only receive financial support for prescribed textbooks and stationery but also benefit from continuous monitoring and mentoring to help them reach their full potential. The program focuses on students studying in areas such as accounting, science, technology, and related fields, as these sectors face skill shortages.

Applicants are required to pay a monthly fee contribution of R120 for capturing their information on the Student Management Portal.
