HER Wines Bursary


Empowering young people is a key focus for the HER Wine Collection team. These women in wine understand the struggle because of the hurdles they themselves have overcome to get to where they are today.

Each woman has found their niche in the business world through their own hard work but also because of the people they met along the way who gave them a hand up, and they’d like to do the same for others.

Women empowerment

Their women empowerment project is a bursary scheme for young matriculants, enabling the successful applicants to realise their own dreams. Sponsoring aspirant South African female winemakers is not their only goal, their empowerment vision is broader.

Just as they bring their own skills to work together to run this dynamic business, so the HER Wine Collections team wishes to encourage other young people to use their own talents to create a sustainable and rewarding career for themselves. Their aim is, therefore to fund matriculants to study at a tertiary institution of their choice and to mentor them in the process to ensure success.

What is a bursary?

A bursary is a sum of money given to a person by an organisation, in this case the HER Wine Collection, to pay for their studies when they would otherwise not be able to. The funds can also be used to buy necessities such as a laptop, stationery and text books.

To apply for this bursary, applicants simply need to contact Kelli Bushby at Bosman Adama by email: hradmin2@bosmanadama.co.za

Complete and return the form along with your ID, the ID of your parent/guardian and your latest matric results, including a motivational letter giving reasons for the application.

If shortlisted, a suitable time for an interview will be arranged with each bursary applicant.

The HER Wine Collection bursary is funded by 2% of the profits of HER Wines. Therefore, available bursaries for 2023 depend on annual wine sales figures.
