Funding Your Study Through Tertiary Bursary Programs- South Africa

A tertiary bursary is awarded for study after high school at TVET colleges, Universities of Technology and Universities.  There are several different types of bursaries awarded for selected reasons.  These reasons may include academic excellence, special talent, categories of people – racial, religious categories, gender or disabilities and financial need.  It is important to read carefully the type of person the bursar is looking for.

Bursaries are provided by charitable organisations, wealthy individuals and companies.  Companies such as Nedbank provide bursaries because they want to see more young people graduate into their sector.  These organisations are spending their own money so they get to choose the type of person or study field that they want to spend it on.   Read more
