About NEET (National Economic Education Trust)

  • NEET (National Economic Education Trust) is a non-profit organization that was created in the early 1990s to provide educational help to poor kids, with a concentration on pupils who excel in Science and Mathematics.
  • Over two decades later, approximately R44 million has been distributed in bursaries and financial support to over 5000 South African students, thanks to a government grant of R30 million. Apart from bursaries, NEET provides students with ongoing support throughout their studies through the online Student Management Portal, as well as internships and career placements once they have finished.

About NEET (National Economic Education Trust) Bursary

The National Economic Education Trust bursary program was established to assist poor students by not only supporting their university education but also giving ongoing support and assisting them in finding employment placements or internship programs.

The following disciplines of study will be given bursaries:

  • Accounting
  • Agricultural Training and Development
  • Science
  • Technology

Students receive not just financial assistance (for required textbooks and stationery), but also ongoing monitoring and mentorship to help them achieve their maximum potential. The bursary is primarily for students pursuing studies in accounting, science, technology, and closely related professions, as these are the areas where talents are most in short supply.
