Supporting financially deserving students with good academic potential to take their first steps in achieving their dreams and obtaining their first graduate degree.
We’re always looking to help others be the difference. The Nedbank External Bursary programme assists by supporting financially deserving students with great academic potential to take their first steps in achieving their dreams and obtaining their first undergraduate degree. The Nedbank External Bursary programme aims to fund academically deserving students who do not have the financial means to study full-time towards a first undergraduate degree or diploma at a South African public university or university of technology. Bursaries are awarded to address scarce and future skill requirements in South Africa broadly, as well as with specific focus on the financial sector.
