tuition, accommodation, meal allowances and textbooks.

University Partnership

This provides funding to students already at university but who do not have bursaries and/or NFSAS funding and are often regarded as the “missing middle”.

TVET College Support

This targets young people in CCBSA host communities who did not meet university entrance requirements. Instead, the scholarship support focuses on technical skills development, specifically geared towards the CCBSA value chain e.g: electrical or mechanical engineering.
