Cape BOD: Bursaries 2023

Cape BOD: Bursaries 2023

Cape BOD Bursary Foundation invites students to apply for Bursary Programme 2022 / 2023 academic year.

Bursary Application Closing Date: 31 October 2022

Bursaries will be awarded to Jewish students within the Western Cape province, for Undergraduate and Postgraduate studies in ANY field.

The bursary is administered and coordinated by the Cape South African Jewish Board of Deputies.

Bursaries will be awarded to the maximum value of 50% of the student’s annual fees, therefore students are encouraged to apply for other sources of funding, to supplement this bursary award. The reason the bursary does not provide full funding is so that they can assist as many students as possible, in a small way.

Applicants must satisfy the following minimum entry criteria before applying (please note that failure to meet all the requirements will lead to your application not being considered):

You must be Jewish
You must have completed Matric within the Western Cape province
You must have been permanently residing within the Western Cape province for a minimum of 3 years
You must be studying or intend on studying towards an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification in 2023
You must be studying or intend on studying towards a first qualification
You must be studying or intend on studying at a recognised and accredited tertiary institution (university, technical college, or similar) within the Western Cape province
You must be in financial need
You must actively support communal organisations and be prepared to participate in communal leadership programs
You must read and agree to the Cape BOD Bursary terms and conditions (.pdf)
