List of all Bursaries Open All Year Round

Companies and various organisations that offer bursaries do so for a number of reasons. One of them is to create a pool of qualified and skilled individuals they can alway pick their employees from. This helps bursars when they complete their studies because they do not have to go out and look for a job.

Bursaries open all year round are those that do not have a specified applications closing date. Many bursaries that are offered carry a specific date in which all applications for the following academic year must be return. It is not the case with bursaries open all year round.

Here are some of those that never carry a closing date:

Other bursaries carry a closing date and we have arranged them as such in this portal. You just need to search depending on which time of the year do you see this page.
