ASSET is a Western Cape, section 21, non-profit organisation which was launched in January 2003.

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).
