DENOSA Bursary

Hi, I’m Nomandla from KZN, I’ve been applying for this bursary every year but I ‘ve never get any feedback from the department and now m 30 years old and I’m starting to loose hope of becoming a nurse, because I don’t have money to pay for the private sector… Please I need this bursary…. Help!


Unfortunately, we can’t help you with that process. It totally depends on DENOSA Bursary programme authorities selection process.
