UWC Financial Assistance for 2023 is now available to South African citizens pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies. Only students with good academic records can apply for a UWC Bursary or other funding opportunities.
The University of Western Cape has emphasized equality and diversity on the campus. It has several financial aid programmes in place to increase diversity. One of them is the Erika Theron Trust Postgraduate Scholarship programme. It is intended for female students who are pursuing a Master’s or Doctoral degree in Social Work at UWC.
The Erica Theron Bursary is a means to encourage women to pursue education in social work. It was established in honour of the late Erika Theron, former chancellor of the University of Western Cape.
The scholarship is exclusively for women at UWC who are doing either Master’s or doctoral level degrees in Social Work Studies. The funds to be awarded are dependent on the availability at that time.
