External Sponsorship Bursaries

To be considered for a bursary administered and awarded by the University of Johannesburg (UJ), applicants complete only one UJ bursary application form.

If you are applying for more than one bursary which are administered and awarded by the University of Johannesburg (i.e. only bursaries with UJ addresses), you may – on a separate page – list the bursaries in alphabetical order for which you would like to be considered and send this list to the University together with one bursary application form. Only one third-party bursary can be awarded per candidate.

Applications must reach the Bursary Office on the respective campuses by no later than 15 November annually of the preceding year. Late applications will not be considered.

Applicants may cancel their applications without any obligation to the University. Doubts regarding prospective studies should therefore not prevent candidates from submitting their applications on time.

These bursaries will be considered only after the June examinations and the results will be announced soon thereafter.

Applications from postgraduate students are considered as soon as the examination results of the previous degree course are known, after which candidates are informed of the outcome thereof. Applications from applicants applying for a bursary for the second or third year of study in a postgraduate degree course (for which examination results are therefore not applicable) are judged on the results of the progress reports from promoters, supervisors and heads of departments with regard to their interim progress.

Refer to External sponsor bursaries and loans for more information.

Application forms are available here.​​
