The Nelson Mandela University Sport Bureau offers sport bursaries of varying amounts to those who have demonstrated the ability to play sport at a high level of competition. Application forms are available from their office. E-mail: Charmaine.firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (041) 504 2496. Closing date: Before the end of October each year.
National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS)
NSFAS is a government loan scheme, with the added incentive of a maximum of 40% being converted into a non-repayable bursary depending on academic performance. The purpose of these loans is to assist financially-needy students who have the academic potential to succeed. As loans do not necessarily cover all costs, students are encouraged to seek additional funding from other sources. Only students whose GROSS combined family income (mother and father) does not exceed R140 000 per annum need apply. Application must be made on the prescribed application form BEFORE 30 October each year. Application forms are available from all financial aid offices from May each year. Incomplete application forms will not be considered.
Bursaries administered by Nelson Mandela University
Bursaries are also available to full-time students using funds provided by private donors or trustees. Applications for financial assistance from funds administered by Nelson Mandela University must be made on a financial aid application form. Application forms can be obtained from the Financial Aid Office on South Campus.
