Bursaries Scholarships

Bursaries and other financial aid initiatives are offered by government departments, companies and private sponsors. Funding is mainly awarded to previously disadvantaged young people who can not afford a higher education. Bursaries can be found in almost every field of study from engineering to journalism, however in order to apply students will have to meet certain requirements set by benefactors.

Scholarships are also a form of student funding, however scholarships are primarily awarded to students with outstanding academic, artistic, athletic or other abilities. Scholarship money does not need to be repaid and therefore it is the most desirable form of funding and the hardest to obtain. Do you need financial aid? Find a bursary or scholarship in your field of study.
