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.
Preference will be given to learners with Mathematics and Science as subjects.
Full-time students at Further Education and Training (FET) Colleges and Agricultural Colleges are eligible for bursaries.
