Renergen bursaries

Bursaries are an essential component of our strategy, which aims to facilitate the empowerment of talented individuals within the region in which we operate. We see it as our responsibility to ensure that we support capacity building within the industry and the community, so that these individuals can realize their full potential.

Our goal is to develop competent individuals from the Matjhabeng and Masilonyana municipalities of the Free State. Bursaries will be distributed to a combination of secondary school and tertiary level students. Renergen commits to investing in people from these areas to help with youth development in order to put this intention into action.

Our primary goals

To support recognized high school students from the local community who have the ability to enter the production or energy industry, and suitable students from the local community who wish to receive training at a HET institution.

The purpose of the bursaries are to encourage the development of talents that will be useful either at our head office in Johannesburg or at our gas gathering plant in Virginia.

Our policy directs us in the awarding of scholarships and bursaries by supplying a standardized and transparent framework for the decision-making process. This framework is designed in accordance with the strategic goals of the company.
