Brian Saunders and Sheree Anne Marinus received R15 000 bursary chequwa each fore their studies in built environments during the live radio programme, The Green Hour by the Southern African Association for Energy Efficiency (SAEE).
Marishka Singh also participated in the radio programme. She had also received a bursary during the SAEEC2011 Convention and Exhibition in November 2011.
The 2011 candidates delivered excellent academic results in their first year of study, which demonstrated good work ethic, dedication and determination. The SAEE bursary committee was overwhelmed by the enthusiasm shown toward the energy efficiency cause by these youngsters. Brian Saunders and Sheree Anne Marinus, both 3rd year Bachelor of Architecture students at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU), and Merishka Singh, in her 3rd year of study toward a Degree in Town and Regional Planning with the Durban University of Technology (DUT) have been earmarked as individuals with great vision for the future of South Africa.
giving a hand to the green-minded
The SAEE annually awards three bursaries to deserving students in their 2nd or 3rd year of study in the built environment, environmental and engineering fields of studies to encourage them to continue making contributions to an energy efficient economy for the country. Last year a staggering 51 applications were received from educational institutions across the country. Students may also apply to become members of the SAEE at no charge.
Bursary applications opened on 2 May for this year: the three scholarships of R15, 000.00 each will cover relevant study costs for 2nd or 3rd year students who do not currently have scholarships and or bursaries. These will be given to students with an excellent academic record in previous years of study. Scholarships are awarded in support of transformation of the energy sector and will only be awarded to South African Nationals.
There are no conditions or strings attached to these scholarships.
