Richfield Graduate Institute Bursary

Statistics reveal that approximately half of the South African population can’t afford tertiary education fees.

The bursary will only cover the tuition fees, any other expenses such as accommodation, laptop, textbooks, and allowance must be shouldered by the student.

In addition, upon completion of the student’s course, he or she may be requested to assist the Institution in his/her qualified field at any of the Institution’s national campuses for a period of time equivalent to the period of study for which the Bursary was effective.

A progress report will also be regularly forwarded to the bursary provider in order to track every bursary recipient’s academic progress. Failure to pass a semester or year course may lead to a revoked bursary privileges.
