University of Cape Town UCT Undergraduate Bursaries

NSFAS AND UCT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE


As of 1 August 2016, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) opened its student-centred application model. First-time applications for financial aid, as well as funding renewal for those students who are already recipients of NSFAS funding, will be handled centrally via NSFAS. Although applicants may have applied to multiple institutions for admission to study, only one financial aid application directly to NSFAS will be required.

UCT will co-fund and be part of this new student-centred application model and all students and learners who need financial assistance should apply to NSFAS via the latter’s on-line application system www.nsfas.org.zaWe do not require a separate application to determine eligibility for funding from UCT as we will receive directly from NSFAS the information we require in order to determine your eligibility for UCT funding programmes.

The University provides a well-rounded financial assistance system to those that meet the qualifying criteria for financial assistance. The Student Financial Aid website (www.uct.ac.za/apply/funding/undergraduate/financial/) provides comprehensive details on the financial assistance programmes.

Applicants who do not apply by the closing date will not be considered for funding.

BURSARIES

This handbook provides applicants and students with information on sponsors that are offering bursaries and or loan assistance. These must be applied for as indicated.

Students should regularly consult Faculty notice boards, the Careers Services and the Student Financial Aid website for information on any other sponsors who may be offering assistance. Depending on when these become available, they may not necessarily be advertised in this booklet.

PROGRESS REPORTS AND RESULTS REQUIRED BY EXTERNAL SPONSORS AND SCHOLARSHIP/ BURSARY GRANTING AGENCIES

If you hold an outside award, where the sponsor requires the University to submit an academic progress report or your final results for the year, you must complete the relevant section on your Registration Form when you register each year. It is important to fill in the full name and address of the sponsor. If you are awarded an external bursary or scholarship after registration, you must advise the Student Fees Office, Kramer Law Building before mid-May of the name and address to which a progress report should be sent.
