When you think of bursaries, the first thing that comes to your mind is financial aid. But there are more than just financial reasons why a student would be offered a bursary. A person could be offered a bursary because they are disabled or they have excelled in their academics. There are different types of bursaries depending on what the conditions are for receiving them.

A bursary program often covers study expenses and tuition fees and allows you to focus on academics without having to work part-time jobs to pay for your studies. In order to apply for this bursary program, you must meet the bursary requirements.

If you are looking to further your education without having to worry about the financial burden, consider applying for a bursary.
