Armscor, formally referred to as the Armaments Corporation of South Africa, functions as a government-owned entity within the defence industry. Its primary responsibilities encompass the procurement, maintenance, and disposal of defence equipment and resources on behalf of the South African National Defence Force. Armscor plays a pivotal role in strengthening South Africa's defence capabilities and promoting self-sufficiency in defence-related technology. The organisation's core objectives include fostering the development of domestic industries, forging strategic partnerships, and driving technological advancements in the defence sector.
Armscor, recognised as the Armaments Corporation of South Africa, has partnered with the defense sector to extend bursaries to exceptional students through the Armscor Bursary Scheme. The primary objective of this initiative is to address the scarcity of science and engineering expertise within the defense industry. It places a particular emphasis on improving the performance of Mathematics, Science, and technical subjects in schools. These bursaries are targeted towards learners hailing from disadvantaged backgrounds who aspire to pursue full-time academic studies in the fields of engineering and science.
