Cape Wools SA: Bursaries 2023

Cape Wools SA is inviting students to apply for funding under the “Wool Industry Bursary Trust”, for the 2023 academic year. The Trust was formed to provide financial assistance to students, studying towards qualifications relating to the South African wool industry.

Students who are pursuing studies towards Textile/ Fashion Design and within the Wool Industry, in the wool or sheep direction, are welcome to apply.
