About our Bursary

The Women’s Property Network (WPN) was established in 2000, with the main goal of providing a platform for women in the commercial property industry to build valuable connections, as well as develop and enhance their careers and recognize and celebrate the success of women in the industry.

The network has more than 400 members across South Africa, with regional chapters in Gauteng, the Western Cape, and KwaZulu-Natal.

Aims of the Bursary

WPN, through its Educational Trust, provides bursary funding to previously disadvantaged female students who are pursuing studies within the Property industry. WPN has awarded over 90 bursaries to female students, since 2008.

The WPN Educational Trust is administered by the Founder and CEO of Motseng Investment Holdings (Ipeleng Mkhari), the Director of Smith Tabata Buchanan (Refqah Fataar Ho-Yee), and the CEO of Attacq (Jackie van Niekerk).

Bursaries will be awarded for Undergraduate Degrees or Diploma studies, in Property-related fields (Built Environment and Commercial Real Estate sector).

The bursary will provide cover for tuition fees, for the 2023 year of study (the bursary will NOT cover any outstanding student debt or arrears).

The bursary may also provide cover for study materials, at the discretion of WPN (students must submit a list of books from the institution/ official bookshop and a valid quotation).
