First National Bank Fund

In line with the vision of being a great business helping to create a better world, First National Bank (FNB) views its role within the country as going way beyond that of a major player in the business environment. A big focus for many years has been on adopting initiatives that will make South Africa a better place for all – this is the work of the FNB Fund.

The FNB Fund supports the following programmes:

Early Childhood Development Programme

Applications for the FNB ECD Programme is currently closed.  Please note that the current cycle will be for three years and therefore a new strategy and next call for proposals will only take place in 2020.

All current partners must report on their grant using the official reporting form. Please check your grant letter for the deadline of your report.

This programme provides both full and partial bursaries and is administered by specialist bursary service providers.

The purpose of the programme is to provide access to high-quality tertiary education and the support needed to graduate for academically capable and financially disadvantaged students each year.

We are currently closed for applications from potential service providers to administer bursaries and student support in universities.
