If you're a SASSA recipient wanting to pursue your higher education studies but can't afford it, you might ask yourself: Can I get a bursary?

This is because the means test used by SASSA to determine whether a person’s income is low enough to qualify for grants corresponds to the income requirements of bursaries.
