Each year Nedbank awards bursaries to help students with the costs of higher education. So if you’re thinking of studying towards a university degree but don’t have the financial means, the Nedbank Bursary Fund could be your opportunity to study at university.
When Nedbank consider you for a bursary, we ask ourselves the following questions:
Are you a South African citizen?
Do you contribute to Nedbank’s transformation targets?
Have you achieved enough academically?
Specifically, have you earned at least a 65% average pass mark, while also meeting all the registration criteria of a SA public university or university of technology?
Where do you score on a financial means test?
Does your degree meet a scarce skill we’ve identitied at Nedbank or for the greater good of South Africa?
A NEDBANK BURSARY COVERS THE FOLLOWING COSTS FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES AT SOUTH AFRICAN UNIVERSITIES AND UNIVERSITIES OF TECHNOLOGY:
full time tuition;
a monthly stipend to cover the
cost of out-of-pocket expenses.
The bursary only funds studies in the next academic year and cannot be used
to pay for existing or previous study loans or tuition expenses
