Field of Study:
Bursaries are variable and cover a percentage of the cost of tuition together with an annual book allowance.
Bursars are able to access loans to cover the shortfall and any other costs e.g. hostel accommodation through our partnership with the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).
ASSET (the Association for Educational Transformation) is situated in the Western Cape, South Africa.
It is a non-profit NGO which aims to provide opportunities for students from disadvantaged communities to realise their full educational potential, and to contribute to the process of educational transformation in South Africa.
- Applications may be made for a University or University of Technology in the Western Cape only.
- Applications for private institutions or FET Colleges are not accepted.
- In view of large numbers of applications, only successful candidates will be notified.
- This will be done by the end of February.
Important note for learners in Grade 12
You should apply to the University or University of Technology of your choice as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
You should ensure that all examination results from Grade 11 until June/September of Grade 12 are submitted.
Late applications cost more and often lead to frustration when you find your chosen course of study is full.
Only South African citizens who are resident in the Western Cape are eligible.
Students who are in Grade 12 and intend studying for a first degree, diploma or higher certificate are eligible.
You must meet the entry requirements for your chosen field of study.
