First Rand Trust Bursary

Everyone deserves a good education.  Not only does this give you life skills, but it also gives you a head start in life and provides you with access to various opportunities to build the kind of life that you want. 

While many people want to further their studies, achieving this is becoming increasingly costly. Research has shown that the cost of tertiary education is rising at a rate that is faster than inflation.

As a result, more people are seeking financial solutions to help them achieve further study.

One of the most popular ways for people to study further is by getting a scholarship or bursary.

A bursary is a kind of scholarship that you get on the basis of financial need.  Scholarships usually need to be repaid, while bursaries do not.
