ASSET Teaching Bursary Programme for South African Students, 2013 South Africa

If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

You should apply to the University or University of Technology of your choice as early as possible to avoid disappointment. You should ensure that all examination results from Grade 11 until June/September of Grade 12 are submitted. Late applications cost more and often lead to frustration when you find your chosen course of study is full. Awards:Awards are made by a Selection Committee meeting in late January and are based on merit and financial need. Where funds are limited priority is given to students who are financially needy and who are from less advantaged communities. Awards are variable and cover a percentage of the cost of tuition, registration and books. ASSET bursaries are not repayable. Bursars are able to access loans to cover the balance and any other costs through a partnership with NSFAS (National Student Financial Aid Scheme.) Loans through NSFAS are repayable to NSFAS but up to 40% may be converted to a bursary depending on successful results. Bursary funds are paid directly to tertiary institutions.

Only South African citizens who are resident in the Western Cape are eligible. Students who are in Grade 12 and intend studying for a first degree, diploma or higher certificate are eligible. You must meet the entry requirements for your chosen field of study.

Deadline: 31 October
