The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) is a South African based accountancy body, in fact they are the top accountancy body in the country. The history of the company dates back to 1894, when it was formed in Johannesburg as “The Institute of Accountants and Auditors”. SAICA is one of the global leading Institutes and currently boasts more than 36 000 members. The company prides itself on providing their CAs with advice, support and services over the course of their professional lives.
In 1987, SAICA joined forces with the Association for the Advancement of Black Accountants (ABASA) and the PAAB to create the CAs’ Eden Trust, as a means to provide bursary funding to black CAs(SA). The name then changed to the Thuthuka Bursary Fund in 2002 and has since assisted many struggling students complete their studies and reach their dreams of becoming a CA.
SAICA has been awarding bursaries to disadvantaged African and coloured students who want to study to become CAs(SA), since 2005, by way of the Thuthuka Bursary programme.
SAICA is inviting Accounting students to apply for the Thuthuka Bursary Fund, for the 2023 academic year.
