FirstRand International Postgraduate Scholarships 2021 – 2022

What is Bursary 

Bursary is A grant, especially one awarded to someone to enable them to study at university or college.

How does it work?

Bursaries vary in amounts and professions and are given to students in order to further their studies. In return for funding your studies, the company may require you to repay them by signing a work contract with them. Another type of bursary is a donor bursary (a bursary awarded to a deserving candidate in a specific field of study or in recognition for his/her work in a specific field of study).
