SOCIAL WORK BURSARIES

 Social Work Bursaries Information
Since I started writing about all kinds of bursaries, I have noticed that the trend is growing for people searching for social work bursaries. I have only came across very few bursaries for social work.

Social work bursaries are offered by the Department of Health and the Department of Art and Culture. The aim of these departments is to development a pool of social workers who will join the public sector after completing their studies. 

Today I will take a closer look at the social work bursaries offered by the Department of Arts and Culture.
