The aim is to provide financial support to students who are academically performing yet financially needy.
The college does not offer bursaries to students but the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) does via the DHET TVET Bursary scheme: National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) administers bursary applications on behalf of the DHET through TVET colleges.
It is NOT GUARANTEED that you will receive a bursary. Only those who meet the set criteria by the DHET Bursary guideline 2019 will; subject to the availability of funds. (The full copy of the guideline can be downloaded from www.nsfas.co.za)
Please note the deadlines and submit the correctly completed forms with sufficient, truthful and valid documents to precipitate the processing of your application.
