City of Johannesburg Bursary 2022


Application is now open for students to apply for the City of Johannesburg Bursary.

Johannesburg, a young city with an incredible history and legacy sprang up in 1886 when gold was found by prospectors found in the area now known as the Witwatersrand. When the public discovered about Johnnesburg, thousands migrated to this settlement in search of fortune and new opportunities. Up to date, Johannesburg is still attracted by those who see it as an avenue to realize their dreams and achieve success.

The new city was named after two officials of the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek (ZAR); Johannes Meyer and Johannes Rissik.  Johannesburg grew and transformed rapidly from a small settlement into a fully developed city. The Anglo-Boer war could not even stop its growth. Johannesburg has always been recognised as the gold beating heart of South Africa in those stormy times and beyond.
