Student wins prestigious SAMRO Music Bursary

07 Sep, 2017

Second year music student Ms Slindile Dlamini wins SAMRO Special Undergraduate Bursary.

Second year music student Ms Slindile Dlamini is the proud recipient of the 2017 Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) Special Undergraduate Bursary for study in music performance.

The bursary falls under the Roodepoort International Eisteddfod of South Africa (RIESA) Special Undergraduate Bursary.

Dlamini described the award as ‘meaningful and an honour’.

The R20 000 bursary will enable her to pay her fees and buy costumes and instruments for her concerts and recitals. ‘I am sincerely honoured to have been selected as the winner of SAMRO/REISA Bursary. It is a blessing!’

She sees bursaries of this nature as important because they allow students to give of the best in their craft without financial worries.

Advising other students, Dlamini said: ‘Education is the key to success. Work hard and achieve your goals.’

Senior Lecturer in the African Music and Dance (AMD) programme, Dr Patricia Opondo, commented. ‘We are grateful to SAMRO for awarding bursaries to seven UKZN students in 2017, and for recognising and supporting student achievement in universities throughout South Africa.

‘The RIESA is a special undergraduate award and we are proud that Slindile is one of three students nationally to receive it. She’s an inspiration especially to our undergraduate students in the African Music and Dance programme as she consistently does well in both the academic and performance fields.’
