UP SUPPORT BURSARIES
A limited number of bursaries are made available annually that were donated by external donors and placed under the management of UP. The bursaries are available to students who register for full-time study and who are financially needy and/or academically deserving. Students who are South African citizens or hold permanent residency in South Africa, may be considered for these bursaries.
Other bursaries/loans received by the applicant will be taken into consideration to determine financial need where applicable.
It is advisable that students who are financially needy should also apply for NSFAS funding and not only for UP support bursaries which are limited.
University support bursaries are not guaranteed and are subject to the availability of funds.
Special motivation or proof of meeting the criteria for some of the UP support bursaries has to be submitted as part of the application on the University’s online funding application system. These supporting documents will be indicated to you on the application system.
