Studietrust Bursaries

Scholarships for South African » Scholarships for Studying at Public Educational Institutions

Studietrust is an independent national bursary agency, a non-profit civil organisation, based on Christian principles.

A civil initiative to fight poverty in South Africa by empowering able but financially needy young people with opportunities for further education.

They have a single focus: the financially needy child and young person who, in the hope of a better future, urgently want to continue studying.

They select students who, under threat of poverty, simply ask for the opportunity to study.

General Selection Criteria:

  • The main criteria used in the selection of successful applicants are financial need, academic potential and career-oriented study programmes.

  • Preference is also given to applicants from rural areas and to female applicants.

  • Studietrust school bursaries (Grade 9 to 12 only) are aimed at learners who maintain an average of at least 70% in all their subjects.

  • Terms and conditions apply - see each type of bursaries' conditions.

    Bursary Amounts:
