S.E.T. for socio-economic growth
Bursaries or scholarships are funds (money) given so that students can study. This is money that does not have to be paid back.
Some bursaries/scholarships have a condition that the students must work for the company that provided the money, after they complete their studies. A loan is when you have to pay back the money that was provided for your studies. Often interest also has to be paid on a loan – this is like the price of borrowing the money.
A bursary is given for a number of reasons. Often bursaries are given to top-performing high school students to allow them to study at a tertiary institution like a university or university of technology. Bursaries can also be given to students already at university who need help with money to study further.
