Bursaries are ‘funding awards’ usually offered by businesses or educational institutions for the purpose of enabling students, who are unable to fund their own studies, to study further. In South Africa, bursaries are especially valuable because of the sheer number of students who are unable to take their studies further. This is why many organisations in the country take it upon themselves to set aside a certain sum for a bursary or scholarship, sometimes more than one, for students who meet certain criteria.
Because bursaries are centered around money, it is important to have competent people managing the process. Bursary administration and management bridges the gap between ‘getting an education’ and ‘entering the job market.’ Managing the bursary distribution process is about simplifying the complexities, ensuring the efficiency and longevity of the process, as well as managing costs around distributing bursary funding.
If you are interested in setting funds aside within your own organisation for bursary and scholarship purposes, don’t let the admin side of things discourage you.
