The Bursary Programme provides ﬁnancial assistance to academically deserving and ﬁnancially needy undergraduate students in any ﬁeld of study, and any year of study, for a ﬁrst tertiary qualiﬁcation.
The Foundation makes a maximum number of 1200 awards per annum to students across the country. The level of the award depends on the total (gross) family or household income before deductions. The award pays a percentage of registration and course fees.
The award does not make provision for other expenses, like travel costs, accommodation costs, or study materials. HCI funded students are committed to their studies, to achieving sound academic results, improving their own lives, and those of their families and communities.
Once you are accepted onto our Bursary Programme, we will support you until you complete your course of study, as long as you progress academically each year.
The Foundation does not pay for repeat years of study or repeat courses of study. The Foundation does not support postgraduate courses of study.
