Education is a key factor to a successful professional career. We at Billion Group understand this and know that excellent education is costly and many young South Africans are unable to afford a tertiary education. This is why it is so important for us to assist in finding students with potential and assist them with their financial needs.
Unlike most companies that offer bursaries, Billion Group has decided to invest in first year tertiary students. Yes, this is risky as statistics have shown that more than 50% of first year students drop out each year but if everyone gives up on those that are supposed to be the foundation of our future then how will South Africa ever become a better place.
Our focus is directed at South African citizens from previously disadvantaged or designated groups. These individuals need to prove that their household income is below a certain threshold and that they are not able to afford tertiary education.
