A bursary does not have to be repaid, it is a free gift to financially needy students. Because there are far more students wanting free gifts than there is money available, bursaries are normally given to needy students with excellent academic results who are seen to be capable of obtaining their degree in the minimum amount of time. If you are offered several bursaries you will usually be permitted to accept only one (or two small bursaries) so that other needy students may benefit. One student cannot be over-funded whilst thousands of other needy students receive little or nothing.
 
BURSARIES AWARDED BY STUDENT FUNDING
Student Funding administered bursaries (mostly for returning undergraduate students at UKZN) are usually awarded after Registration to financially needy applicants whose current Gross Family Income does not exceed R150,000 per year and who pass 100% of their registered courses in the previous year’s exam sessions and, who achieve an average mark above 64.5% in those same courses.
The value of the bursary may be decided by the specific sponsor but will not exceed full study costs.
Higher average marks will achieve higher bursary values.
In 2013 a student achieving above 74.5% may be awarded a bursary valued at R25,000;
whereas a student achieving below 74.5% but above 64.5% may be awarded a bursary valued at R12500.
These bursaries are usually derived from Deceased Estates or Company Social Responsibility monies.
Students on NSFAS Loan/bursaries will have those awards adjusted after allocation of one of the above.
External sponsorship of the same students will also create an adjustment to the values awarded.
Our five biggest sponsors of Internally administered bursaries are:
> The Emma Smith Educational Trust
> The Cecil Renaud Educational Trust
> The Victor Daitz Foundation
> The Terry & Gladys Champain Educational Trust
> The United Kingdom Trust (see their website if you wish to make overseas donations for bursaries( http://www.ukznuktrust.org)
