PSA Stiglingh Memorial Bursary
The Public Servants Association of South Africa or PSA is the largest public service alliance designed to protect and promote the rights of its members. It was established in July 1920 and has a history of public assistance for nearly a century, representing more than 230,000 public officials and employees. In 2007, social responsibility became a core goal of PSA, which helped many communities. PSA’s social responsibilities include project empowerment, joint ventures and charitable donations.
