What does a Sasol bursary include?

The Sasol bursary is a comprehensive bursary which includes the following:

  • 100% of the prescribed university tuition fees, registration fees and exam fees.
  •  An amount equal to the average rate for accommodation in a single room at a university residence at the university at which the Sasol bursar is studying. This rate is determined by Sasol in conjunction with the university.
  •  An amount for meals based on three meals per day, as determined by the university.
  •  An amount of approximately R12 000,00 per annum, towards book and pocket money.



  • Prescribed tuition fees, registration fees and exam fees are paid directly to the university.
  • Students will be required to pay for any repeat subjects as well as any subject not included in the particular curriculum.
  • Monies for accommodation are paid directly to the university if the student is staying in university-administered accommodation.
  • In cases where the student elects to stay in non-university administered accommodation, monies in lieu of accommodation and meals will be paid directly to the individual. In such instances, the amounts will be limited to that prescribed in bullet 2 and 3 above.
  • Book and pocket money will be paid directly to the individual.
  • Payments in respect of the above are made twice a year. The first payment is made at the beginning of the first semester, and the second payment is made at the beginning of the second semester.
  • Full details of the process and the requirements which must be met for payment will be communicated to successful applicants once a bursary has been awarded.
