Financial support from the SAGWRI

SAGWRI may, at its discretion and subject to sufficient funding being available, award the financial support to full-time registered students, if they have not been awarded any other external bursaries. Bursaries are awarded in terms of the regulations of Stellenbosch Universit​​​y.  In exceptional cases SAGWRI retains the right to make adjustments to bursary supplementations depending on the total value of the bursaries awarded, as well as the performance of the student.
