harmony-gold-bursary-programme-2017

Harmony Gold Mining is looking to award bursaries to top-performing students in their 2nd or 3rd year of studies in various disciplines. Due to the nature of our business, priority will be given to students studying mining related core disciplines i.e. Mining Engineering, Engineering (Mechanical & Electrical – Heavy current), Extractive Metallurgy, Survey and Geology but not limited to the above disciplines.

The objective of the Harmony Gold Bursary Scheme is to recruit and select bursars preferably from communities surrounding our operations for full time study at accredited Tertiary Institutions. The Bursary Scheme accommodates students entering or already at Tertiary Institutions.

The scheme covers tuition and residence fees, the cost of prescribed text books and also provides a personal allowance. The scheme is designed to contribute to the development of historically disadvantaged South Africans.

Harmony Gold was incorporated 62 years ago and is one of the largest gold mining companies in the world and the third largest gold producer in South Africa. Harmony is a multi-listed company and its primary listing is on the JSE Limited (ticker: HAR). Harmony operates mines in South Africa and Papua New Guinea.
