ASSET (Association for Educational Transformation) Bursary South Africa 2021 – 2022

ASSET (Association for Educational Transformation) Bursary South Africa

ABOUT THE COMPANY – ASSET

The Association for Educational Transformation (ASSET), a non-profit organisation situated in the Western Cape was founded in January 2003. The organisation previously operated under the wing of the SAIRR (South African Institute of Race Relations), with a longstanding history of assisting disadvantaged students with their educational needs.

As a way of giving back to the disadvantaged community, ASSET has a bursary programme to allow students to pursue their studies who lack the funds to pay for their tuition. Funding is received from not only local and national donors but also international donors.
 

ABOUT THE ASSET BURSARY PROGRAMME – FIELDS COVERED & COVERAGE VALUE

ASSET are inviting students to apply for bursaries for the 2022 academic year.
Bursaries are awarded each year, to cover ANY field of study, towards a first higher certificate/ diploma/ degree qualification, at the University of Cape Town, the University of the Western Cape, Stellenbosch University or Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

 

The partial bursary will provide cover for a portion of tuition fees and books – the amount is variable. Students must apply for other loans or bursaries to cover the balance of their fees.
 

MORE ABOUT THE ASSET BURSARY PROGRAMME – RENEWABILITY, SERVICE CONTRACT & SELECTION

Bursaries will support students for the entire duration of their undergraduate studies, on condition that they maintain good grades. Students must reapply for funding each year.

ASSET bursaries are not repayable, but bursary recipients should join the ASSET Alumni Association and occasionally assist with other programmes or in the office.

Bursaries will be awarded based on academic merit and financial need. The most important criteria is the means test – a test used to determination eligibility for government financial assistance, based on family income.
