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.

You can access the application form below and once completed, please hand it in at the Financial Aid Office or email finaid@ru.ac.za Tel:  046 603 8248.   The closing date for applications is 31 March 2023.
