By on September 15, 2015
AD

PPS bursaries are awarded on financial need and academic record to full time university students in an effort to assist students financially to cover tuition and/or text book costs for one academic year.

PPS is the only mutual financial services company in South Africa that has focused exclusively on graduate professionals for over 74 years.

Selection Criteria

  • To be eligible for the PPS bursary, the student must be registered at a participating South African University or University of Technology (listed below) registering for a fourth academic year of study or post-graduate degree and must be studying towards a profession, which on qualification, would be eligible for PPS membership.
  • The student must be a citizen or permanent resident of South Africa
  • The student must have an academic average of at least 60%.
  • The application criteria is determined entirely at PPS’ discretion and PPS reserves the right to change the criteria at any time without prior notice to applicants. PPS also reserves the right to withdraw its financial aid to successful applicants should it be found at any time that an applicant does not (or no longer) meets the application criteria or the applicant has breached any of the terms and conditions in any way.
  • PPS does not award bursaries to students that already have other confirmed sponsors which cover their entire academic expenses, unless the alternative sponsor is a loan and not a bursary. If the student is in contravention with this policy, the bursary (and funds) will be withdrawn and disbursed to an alternate bursary recipient.

Value of the bursary

The PPS Dean bursary only covers tuition and text book costs to the maximum amount of budget as specified by PPS, for one academic year – payable for 1 or more students within a specific faculty at the discretion of the dean.

PPS is only assisting students financially to obtain their qualification; it is not obliged to provide students with any practical training or employment on completion of studies. Recipients of the PPS Bursary award will be granted the opportunity to sign up and become a PPS student member at no cost.
