Stellenbosch University – South Africa is currently awarding the International Scholarship Programme to individuals who are seeking to undergo a degree program at the Institution. Students are advised to plan their finances carefully and to verify whether or not they meet the basic requirements, such as academic merit, before applying for a bursary.
These bursaries are limited to certain fields of study and offer small amounts to a few selected students only. These bursaries are subject to the availability of funds. When allocations of the private bursaries are made, preference is given to SA citizens, with the highest level of study (degree programme) and the highest marks, unless otherwise specified.
