ORU Bursary Awards
The Old Rhodian Union (ORU) Committee administers the bursary programme. Annually it awards a number of bursaries to students at Rhodes University who are children and grandchildren of Old Rhodians (including Rhodes University staff members).
There are no restrictions on family gross income for these bursaries. However, a means test is applied to determine the most needy applicants. The duration of the bursary is one year. Previous recipients may apply for re-awards, but their applications will be considered afresh, in light of the new pool of applicants. Re-awards are not guaranteed.
Application forms for an ORU Bursary may be requested directly from the Financial Aid Office by contacting the Financial Aid Administrator on telephone 046-6038248 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applications is 15 March annually. An award ceremony is held during the second term to present the awards to successful applicants.
