Postgraduate Bursaries in South Africa

by Staff Reporter

You may have just completed your undergraduate qualification and are looking to advance your studies or you may have been working for a while and are looking to get back into the academic world. If you don’t have the financial means, then you will need to consider a bursary or another form of funding. We have collected a number of options to help you fund your postgraduate studies. 

If you have a solid academic history that you have maintained throughout over the duration of your studies, you may qualify to apply for a postgraduate bursary. 

Bursaries often cover a variety of additional costs involved in studying such as textbooks, laptops, the living cost for meals and accommodation.

If you are a South African student in search of bursaries, then you are in the right place as we’ve compiled some of the ongoing postgraduate bursaries for you. 

It is important to note that most bursary applications for 2022 have already closed. You should make sure you are considering bursaries for 2023 when looking at applying for a bursary. Many of the bursaries for 2022 have closed, however, there are a few that may still be open for applications. We have gathered bursaries for 2022 and 2023, so if you cannot apply for the upcoming year, you can always keep these in mind for the future. 

The first thing you should ensure is that you are eligible for the bursary you are considering and that it supports your area of study.

Most bursaries have minimum requirements to be met after the bursary is awarded, such as maintaining high academic performance. Make sure you can meet all of these requirements before applying and that you are prepared to meet the educational needs set out by the bursary.
