SEDISA Black Women Education Bursary Trust

Closing Date:

Bursary Details

The focus of the Trust is to assist previously disadvantaged young women of colour in obtaining a tertiary education. 

The young women that we support would not have had an opportunity to study further without the Trust.

By funding these Students we ensure they are able to obtain a tertiary qualification .

Which not only helps them but provides support to their families as the Trust pays for tuition, accommodation, books.

The Trust provides the Students an opportunity to enhance their lives as young South African women .

We believe the Trust instills a drive in the student that they should never give up, even though things may seem impossible at the time.
