MORE ABOUT THE CAPE BOD BURSARY PROGRAMME – COVERAGE VALUE, SERVICE CONTRACT & SELECTION
Bursaries will be awarded to the maximum value of 50% of the student’s annual fees, therefore students are encouraged to apply for other sources of funding, to supplement this bursary award. The reason the bursary does not provide full funding is so that they can assist as many students as possible, in a small way.
