The selection process also involves a series of interview and psychometric assessments. The results from these will contribute to the final selection.
Bursary Eligibility Criteria
To select candidates for the bursary, Harmony Gold has laid out specific eligibility criteria. Everyone must fulfill the requirements before they’re allowed to move further in the selection process.
