List of top Bursaries in South Africa 2016 – 2017


Are you looking to further your studies but lack the funding to do so? Do you have a strong academic history, which you have maintained throughout the year? Whether you’re in your last year of school and thinking about joining University or College next year, or if you’re a current student who cannot afford to continue paying for your studies – if you have a good academic record, but your household income does not permit you to study, you qualify to apply for a bursary or scholarship application.

Most organisations that offer bursaries, require that their bursars complete a work/training programme on completion of their studies, in lieu of the bursary awarded – this is beneficial for both parties, as the student has guaranteed employment after completion of their studies and the chance to gain invaluable work experience.
