About Gibela Rail Bursary Scheme 

The Gibela Rail Transport Consortium, founded in 2013 as a black economic empowerment firm, is made up of Alstom, a French rail company, and Ubumbano Rail, a South African rail company.

The South African government has awarded Gibela an R51 billion contract to build 600 trains for the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA). Train maintenance, technical support, and the fabrication and supply of spare components are all included in the contract’s scope.

Gibela’s bespoke R1-billion factory in South Africa’s Ekurhuleni metropolis is currently producing state-of-the-art X’trapolis MEGA commuter trains.

Gibela is teaching thousands of historically disadvantaged South Africans, mostly women, in technical skills for both Gibela and the manufacturing industry at large as part of its contractual commitments to PRASA. Gibela continues to attract a large number of South African firms into its supply chain, many of which are black-owned start-ups, and seeks to enhance the lives of people in its surrounding areas.

These bursaries are awarded for a year and are renewable each year based on academic performance. Because it is a full bursary, the following expenses will be covered:

Books for full-time students Meals and lodging.
