TUT (Tshwane University of Technology) is giving away bursaries and scholarships funding for students with disadvantages. Since November the 28th 2014, TUT has provided such financial assistance with the hope that star and excellent students will be able to complete their studies despite their insufficient funds. The university understands that students should be given the opportunity to improve their lives (as well as their families) through education. Despite their lack of funding, they should be able to continue their dream without further obstruction.
In most cases, TUT gives out scholarships and bursaries to their engineering and science departments. Through the bursaries, the university hopes to reduce dropout numbers as well as retaining the students with excellent academic performance and record. Besides Merit bursaries (bursaries given for academic performance), there are also other bursaries available for the interested candidates, such as sport bursaries, leadership bursaries, and special talents bursaries. Each of them has their own procedures and requirements so anyone interested in applying should know the details. It is important that the interested applicants check out the academic bursary calendars so they are sure about their eligibility. For those interested in applying for TUT bursaries, they are welcomed to visit http://www.tut.ac.za/students/financial/availablefunding/Pages/default.aspx to find out more info.
