NamPower bursaries ensure future supply of technical skills

Twenty four students in electrical, electronic, mechanical and mechatronic engineering, in computer science and information technology, in mathematics and physical science, in business administration and in special education, are on their way to university courtesy of a full bursary from national power utility, NamPower.

On Monday, the power company said the bursary recipients have been selected from a host of applications from across the country. The twenty four qualifying students represent eight of the fourteen regions. These students will attend Namibian and South African universities. The bursaries were presented to the recipients by the company’s Managing Director, Kahenge Haulofu at a small reception in Windhoek.

“The criteria for the selection of the final candidates for the NamPower bursaries included critical factors such as academic performance and financial need,” stated NamPower.

The NamPower Bursary Scheme has been in existence for more than 20 years, and has invested millions in bursaries for Namibian students at local tertiary institutions, and in other SADC countries.
