4. APPLYING FOR BURSARIES

The University administers two categories of Funding, Merit and Needy Cases

4.1 Merit

VW MANELI 2

Matric merit focusses on first year matric students that performed at achievement levels of between 7 and 5. The University funds them fully from registration, and continue to fund them if they continue to pass and drop no modules during the course of their studies.

Senior students merits are sourced through ICT, looking at top performers last year or year last registered on campus. We focus on distinction and first class students that do not fail any module, undergraduate academic programme, and doing the full number of modules in any particular year. Awarding in subsequent years is dependent on similar performance.

4.2 Needy Cases

Students personally apply or get referred to us by the Faculties and the Office of The Dean of Students. The criteria to access these are:

Proof that the student is destitute in terms of household income;

Proof of family situation that renders the family destitute, e.g. orphanage;

Fair academic performance at an average of 75 percent; and

Non-receipt of another funding, except for NSFAS loans.

Kindly contact Mr TT Mthiyane at 035 9026682 or 035 9026307 for more information

4.3 APPLYING FOR NATIONAL STUDENT FINANCIAL AID SCHEME (NSFAS)

Next year’s ( ) students will apply for a loan online and use cellphone-generated vouchers to pay for books and food.The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has re-engineered the system so the new centralised online application process is expected to start on August 1.

Now the students first apply for funding approval to NSFAS through the new centralised system, list their “wishlist” of institutions where they hope to study, then take that financial approval to the institutions to apply for a place.

The NSFAS Application form is accessible on our webpage at www.unizulu.ac.za and click on “Apply”, just below “Why Study at UNIZULU” there are links and click on “Funding” where you can download and print the NSFAS Application Form
