PPS Foundation: Bursaries 2022

PPS Foundation invites qualifying students to apply for Bursary Programme 2022 academic year.

Bursary Application Closing Date: 31 October 2021

The PPS Foundation is inviting students to apply for bursary funding, for the 2022 academic year. Bursaries will be awarded for degree studies within STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields, which are scarce and critical sectors in the country. Bursaries are also available for studies within the Humanities field.

Bursaries will be awarded based on 2 main criteria: financial need and academic performance. The bursary is available from the 1st year of study, through to Honours level.

The bursary will provide cover for the following expenses: tuition fees, text books, meals and accommodation at university residence. Students will also receive access to other resources, to reduce the challenges of the learning and teaching experience.

Bursary recipients in the 1st year of study will be required to attend on-campus contact support sessions, facilitated by the PPS Foundation, at certain times throughout the year.

Bursary recipients are required to submit their statement of results at the end of each semester, as soon as they are received, in order to continue receiving funding.

Candidates can also read about previous PPS bursary recipients, their experiences with the PPS bursary and where they are now.
