What is a Bursary?
A bursary in South Africa is a monetary award that is granted on the basis of financial need. Bursaries are different than scholarships. Scholarships are merit-based and are awarded for academic achievement. Bursaries are financial-need based awards that do not have to be repaid. A bursary is a financial award made by an institution to those individuals who cannot afford to pay full fees. Bursaries are usually renewed each year, on condition that the student is making satisfactory progress. In terms of national and provincial bursaries, bursaries are allocated based on the needs in a specific province and public entity. The bursary opportunities are either a full, partial or work-back bursary.
