FINANCIAL AID

#ItsAllAboutTheStudent

Assistance Guidance Support Help

Our role is to assist our students with the coordination of funding, between the University and the Funders. SPU does not offer institutional bursaries or loans. Our students are encouraged to apply for various funding opportunities.

Students apply directly to funders

Application submissions are assessed and evaluated by funders based on their own criteria and the information provided by the student.

Application for funding does not guarantee any funding to students. Funders will communicate with successful recipients.

Explanation of funding terminology

  • Bursaries are the awarding of funding to academically and financially deserving students.
  • Loans are money borrowed to cover educational fees.
  • Scholarships are usually offered to students who excel academically in their studies.
  • Sponsorship is a recipient of financial support.

Below is a checklist with standard documents which are usually required for any funding opportunity:

  • Identity document
  • Matric certificate
  • Latest academic transcript
  • Household income of both parents/legal guardian e.g. payslips; affadavits; confirmation letter from SASSA; court order as supporting document of legal guardianship.
  • Identity documents of parents/guardian
  • Death certificate of parents
  • Proof of all household members (ID documents, birth certificates)
  • Testimonial or motivational letter
