How to apply for a bursary





  • Write a short letter to ask for application forms for all the bursaries that you think you are eligible for.
  • Apply early, well before the closing date – applications are not accepted after the closing date.
  • Apply only for those bursaries you are eligible for.
  • Apply for as many bursaries as possible.
  • Only accept one bursary unless the organisation says you may apply for others.
  • Be prepared for disappointment – you may not be successful the first time or the second time.
  • Try to make another plan in case you do not get a bursary.
  • A neat, accurate and honest application makes a good impression.
