A bursary is a sum of money that is awarded by an organization to a student, in order for them to study at a university.
These bursaries will cover the costs of the student’s tuition and will sometimes also cover the additional costs associated with studying, such as: textbooks, meal allowances, and accommodation.
The conditions for this funding include:
- Most companies that provide bursaries require the student to work for their organisation, once they have completed their studies.
- A typical ‘work-back’ agreement is that the student works-back 1 year for every year that company paid for their studies. For example, if a company bursars a student for 3 years then the student would need to work-back 3 years at that company.
