The bursary is tenable for three years and may be held concurrently with other scholarships or bursaries. 

A wide interpretation will be given to the relative course of study and would include agriculture, engineering, science, veterinary science, accounting, marketing, computer science, food technology and management. 

The bursary recipient may be offered paid employment by Alliance Group during the long vacation following each academic year in which the bursary is held, provided suitable employment is available.
