Students from economically-deprived backgrounds are challenged to pay expenses not only for tuition fees, but also have difficulties paying for daily expenses such as food, books, stationery and accommodation to participate fully in the university process.

The Bursary Legacy Campaign thus supports students in the following ways:

  1. A full three year undergraduate degree
  2. Tuition Fees (R25 000 for 3 years = R75 000)
  3. Accommodation
  4. Prescribed books
  5. Food allowance
  6. Travel allowance

Your donation enables talented students to attain higher education, to attend class, be a part of positive university experiences and build their futures.  As the students are committed to helping others, your pledge, in time, will contribute equally to the communities they were drawn from.  Thank you for your much-appreciated support.
