How to Apply for a Bursary

Posted by Adam Malapa on Thursday, December 18, 2014 Under: Admin Announcements

These are some of the tips you need to consider when applying for university or college bursaries in South Africa.

How to apply for a bursary

  • Write a short letter to ask for application forms for all the bursaries that you think you are eligible for.
  • Apply early, well before the closing date - applications are not accepted after the closing date.
  • Apply only for those bursaries you are eligible for.
  • Apply for as many bursaries as possible.
  • Only accept one bursary unless the organisation says you may apply for others.
  • Be prepared for disappointment - you may not be successful the first time or the second time.
  • Try to make another plan in case you do not get a bursary.
  • A neat, accurate and honest application makes a good impression.

When you fill in your application form

  • Answer all the questions.
  • Complete the form neatly in print.
  • Use black or blue ink only.
  • Keep the form clean and in good condition.
  • Carefully check the form for mistakes.
  • Be completely accurate.
  • Be completely honest.
  • Include a certified copy of your most recent examination results signed by a Commissioner of Oaths, usually found at the local Post Office or Police Station.
  • Ensure you attach all the supporting documents requested by the organisation
