South African Translators’ Institute Bursary 2021 – 2021

South African Translators’ Institute Bursary 2021 – 2021


Founded in 1956, the South African Translators’ Institute (SATI) is a group of translation professionals across South Africa.
The SATI Development Committee was established in 1993, when SATI realised how vast the need was for trained language workers in SA – thus the bursary award was implemented, whereby the committee collects funds for deserving students in financial need. Since its inception, 113 students have been awarded bursaries.


SATI will be awarding 2 bursaries to the sum of R20 000 each – 1 of the bursaries is sponsored by ATKV (Afrikaanse Taal en Kultuurvereniging). The bursary awards are available for students currently enrolled in a translation, interpreting or language field of study. No bursaries will be awarded to postgraduate of first year students.

The aim of the SATI bursary is to help ease the burden of tuition fees by R20 000 – it is the students responsibility to ensure that they have access to funding for the remainder of their tuition fees.


Applicants must ensure that they meet the following minimum requirements before applying:

  • South African citizen,
  • Fluent in Afrikaans,
  • Currently enrolled in a tertiary institution and studying in the translation, interpreting, language field,
  • Obtained a minimum average mark of 65% for the current year of study,
