The Bursary Programme was established in 1972 under the auspices of the SAIRR Cape Western Region.It provides financial assistance for needy matriculants who apply for study at a tertiary institution in the Western Cape. ASSET took over the programme in 2003 and thanks to the on-going generosity of donors it continues to support approximately 500 students annually.

Bursaries are variable and cover a percentage of the cost of tuition together with an annual book allowance. Bursars are able to access loans to cover the shortfall and any other costs e.g. hostel accommodation through our partnership with the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS). 

NSFAS Partnership

The Bursary Programme has benefited greatly from a partnership with NSFAS. It enables us to offer bursars a bursary/loan package to cover their needs and to help more students than would otherwise be possible. It also has the advantage of encouraging bursars to be responsible for part of the cost of their studies.

NSFAS awards a 40% rebate on loans if bursars pass all their courses. Loans are repayable to NSFAS once the bursar is in employment.

Learner Comments

The main thing that brings me to school each and every Saturday is because I want to learn and pass at the end of the year and that’s exactly what ASSET on Saturdays is giving me, to improve the subjects that I don’t perform well in.  I would say ASSET is really doing a great job. I’ve seen the result when writing control tests. I used to fail Maths but because of Saturday school, I have learnt much, and I thank them a lot.
