  • Applications will be screened to check if they meet the following basic requirements:

  • Whether the applicant meets the requirement in 2.2 above.
  • Whether the application was submitted before or on the closing date (31 August). SAADP may extend the closing date at its discretion.

STAGE 2: Shortlisting

  • The Selection Committee will screen applications further (NB: SAADP staff is not part of this process).
  • Approved applications will be shortlisted, and the shortlist will be processed by SAADP.

  • SAADP will communicate with only shortlisted applicants.
  • Applicants who don’t receive any communication from SAADP at the end of February after having submitted their final Statements of Results/NSC must accept that their applications have been unsuccessful.

STAGE 3: Submission of Statements of Results

  • SAADP shall wait for the submission of final Statements of Results or NSC. 
  • It is the applicant’s responsibility to submit their final Statement of Results or NSC to SAADP at [email protected]

  • Applicants who don’t submit their Statements of Results or NSC to SAADP shall be assumed to be no longer interested in the SAADP bursary and shall be removed from the shortlist (if shortlisted).


  • The South African Actuarial Development Programme is an independent Non-Profit Organisation mandated to consider applicants who only applied to study Actuarial Science at one of its partner universities, i.e. the University of the Witwatersrand, the University of Cape Town, and the University of Pretoria.

  • SAADP only supports Actuarial Science students who have gone through its selection process and have been admitted into the programme.
  • SAADP relies on donations from both private and public companies to offer bursaries and pay for its operations. No bursaries may be offered if there are no donations received.

  • All SAADP applicants are therefore encouraged to also apply for other potential funders that may be available.
  • Due to the large number of applications received each year, applications must not expect any acknowledgment of receipt of applications.
