As the country progressively emerges from the lock-down, SAADP adapts to the new normal of carrying out its activities. In ensuring that learners and students are not disadvantaged by the disruption caused by COVID-19, SAADP has decided to extend the deadline for new applications.
The new closing date for 2020 bursary applications for both Grade 12 learners and current Actuarial Science students is Friday, 18 September 2020.
SAADP will for 2020, not require Grade 12 applicants to submit their June exams results as the Department of Basic Education has rescheduled of these exams. However, applicants who have received their first-term test results are required to submit them. Current Actuarial Science students may attach their recent academic transcripts.
“We encourage all the applicants to submit their applications in time as late applications will delay the screening process by the Selection Committee,” says Mthokozisi Gumede, the Programme Development Manager. “The process will not be the same this year due to the delay caused by the national lock-down, applicants are therefore urged to cooperate,” Gumede concludes.
Due to the suspension of non-academic activities, SAADP will not be visiting schools this year for Actuarial Science Roadshows and the recruitment of learners.
