There are hundreds of places to find information on and apply for bursaries in South Africa. The ones on this site are just a few. Please use a search engine to find more if necessary.
Scholarships are available for undergraduates but they are few as compared to bursaries. Most universities/institutions offer entrance scholarships for 1st year university students. Almost all of these scholarships based on merit. e.g. they offer money for number of A’s you have obtained in Grade 12. Please check each institutions information on this.
