At NMMU we believe in fostering excellence and have developed a prestigious Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship Programme that recognises and rewards high achievers.

Up to 25 top achievers are selected on the basis of exceptional academic merit. The Scholarship – value at R82 782 per annum* – is renewable for each year of a first full-time NMMU undergraduate degree or diploma programme, provided academic performance remains of the highest standard.

A Vice-Chancellor‘s Scholar has access to benefits that will enhance their academic experience. One of the most important aspects of receiving the Scholarship is to become part of a community of fellow recipients at NMMU. Scholars are given an opportunity through a tailor-made development programme to get to know students from around the country who share a commitment to academic excellence, and to enhance your academic and leadership potential.

The Scholarship is open to South African students only. High-achieving school leavers and those who have taken a break from study for up to two years after Grade 12, who are entering university for the first time on the basis of the Grade 12 results, are welcome to apply.

To be considered by the scholarship selection panel an academic aggregate of at least 75% in the Grade 11 (final) and 12 June/September and end examinations is required. Cambridge students with a school performance score of between 41 and 48 will be considered for selection.
