About the bursary

In celebration of a number of Agbiz members who celebrated their 100 years of existence, an annual Agbiz Centenary Bursary Fund was established. The primary objective of the bursary is to promote master’s, or PhD level research in agribusiness-related fields and Agbiz certainly is proud to be associated with and supporting the set research of Agbiz Centenary Bursary holders.

The annual bursary of R43 000.00 is available to a South African student registered for a master’s or PhD degree in agribusiness management-related fields, at any recognised South African university in 2024. Terms and conditions apply. For more information, read the Terms and Conditions Document.

About the Agribusiness Centenary: The Agricultural Business Chamber was established as the Co-operative Council, in order to represent the interests of agricultural co-operatives in the year 1946. However, in 1995 the company underwent a name change to Agricultural Co-operative Business (ACB), following South Africa’s deregulation of agriculture. Another name change took place in 2003, to the Agricultural Business Chamber (ABC). Finally, in 2012 the ABC was relaunched as Agricultural Business Centenary.
