    Hi, I applied for a bursary from the Department of Health: King Edward Hospital last year(2013). I was wondering who I can ask for the outcome thereof. considering the absence of a reply so far should I apply again. I am a second year medical student at Stellenbosch University desperately looking for financial help.

    Thank you

    • Hi Busisiwe. I suggest that you consult with the nearest Hospital so as to inquire about that. For alternative there are also “SAMA Bursaries” that you can apply for and Mercedes Benz Bursaries. All these are for medical students. Good luck.

    • Hi Muziwakhe. Use CAO application form to apply for Nursing at different institutions. You can apply for Nursing at University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), Durban University of Technology (DUT) and University of Zululand. Make it sure that you indicate in the CAO form that you need Financial Aid which is NSFAS. Apply before June because some Faculties of Health close on the 31st of June depending on the University. You must have good academic record in order for you to be eligible for a Bursary. Bursaries are not treated on a “first come first served basis”, you must do exceptionally well on your studies, and you know that learners are highly competitive. Work hard and definitely you gonna place yourself in a position of getting one. Good luck on your Matric.

  33. I’m an ex matriculant of 2014.I’ve been orphaned ever since I was 2 years of age,I’ve been living on a child grant all my life,I want to pursue my dream but do not have the available my community,not everyone who has been in my shoes had completed their schooling but I had done it through hard struggles,I have a dream of someday becomming a professional nurse,I am very intelligent and I know what I want in my life,I’ve been through all kinds of problems in my life but still made it thus far alone,I really need financial aid,please help me

    • My name is Rozanne.I am currently 18 years of age.I come from a slowly developing town called Stanger.I completed my grade 12 year at Glenhills secondary school in the year 2013 obtaining a bachelors degree.I am now unemployed and am determined to study nursing for the reasons provided below.

      I am an orphan since the age of two. However,during my schooling career,I’d been living on a government grant.I completed my schooling career with only my daily necessities met and also having no moral support from anyone around me.

      I have many dreams and goals and one of them is to become a nurse.I feel that my duty here on earth is to take care of the ill and nurse them.I am passionate about taking care of people.I feel that I’ve made it thus far in my life and I do deserve a chance from you sir/madam,to complete my road to someday becoming a successful woman.In this process,I’d be able to rest assured knowing that the other childeren that have been placed in my situations as I grew up,can also be hard working and strongly self motivated as to the way I am.As in my community,not everyone who has been placed in my situations had made it through life as far as to where I am now with my career.

      I’ve also realized the many worldly destructions implicated upon my life and saw each obstacle as a new learning experience.I simply continue to do so with all my steps I take.

      I believe that this application letter is not sent to be granted sympathy but I’d like to be one of those successful applicants who may have an opportunity of achieving their goals and dreams through your bursary opportunity

      I thank you for taking the time to read my application letter and await a positive response.
