The South African Translators’ Institute – SATI Bursary

About South African Translators’ Institute

The major goal of the South African Translators’ Institute (SATI) is to develop the translation profession in South Africa. This goal is especially relevant in modern South Africa because the country has 11 official languages. Aside from this goal, SATI also strives to promote a multilingual culture and the development of conventional translation and interpreting skills in South Africa’s 11 languages.

The use of appropriately qualified and competent language professionals, such as interpreters and translators, is required to put the concept of multilingualism into practice. The South African Translators’ Institute currently lacks a necessary number of skilled language workers.

As a result, they decided to raise funds to help worthy interpreting and translation students, particularly those studying languages that had historically been marginalized.

South African Translators’ Institute Bursary 2022

For the academic year 2021, SATI will award one R10,000 scholarship. Because SATI’s bursary funds are limited, it’s critical that they go to students who have a strong likelihood of excelling in their studies and who are most likely to make a meaningful contribution to the interpreting or translation profession once they’ve completed their studies. Although the student’s financial need is paramount, applicants for the bursary will also be evaluated based on their academic performance.

The applicant’s past SATI awards, language combinations, and professional participation are also taken into account throughout the selection process. SATI is unable to provide bursaries that cover the entire cost of a study program. As a result, any successful applicant must demonstrate that, with the SATI award, they will be able to pay the whole amounts related to their study for the year prior to receiving the bursary. Applicants must also reveal information about any bursaries they plan to earn or have previously received.

Students should also be aware that the SATI bursary will only be handed out if proof of course and year registration is provided. Bursaries will be paid in two installments: 50% at the start of the year and 50% in the second semester, following the submission of the student’s first-semester results. For all subjects in language practice, the scores should indicate an average of 65 percent.

Eligibility Criteria

SATI bursaries are only accessible to students in their second, third, or fourth year of study who are financially challenged. Applicants must submit an affidavit confirming that they have not received any other funds or bursaries that cover the same expenses as the SATI bursary. Furthermore, candidates must demonstrate that they have other sources of income to meet the remainder of their fees and expenditures for the year. Applicants must also meet the following requirements:

  • Be currently enrolled at a tertiary institution in South African for formal training in interpreting, translation, or other aspects of language practice.
