Sports bursaries

Wits Sport awards a limited number of bursaries each year to deserving student-athletes.

Bursary awards are made possible by funding from the university itself, and by the generosity of alumni, the business and non-profit communities, and past Wits sports achievers. Applications for sports bursaries for the 2019 academic year must reach Wits Sport, together with accompanying documentation, by 17h00 on 31 August 2018. Applicants should carefully scrutinise the terms and conditions on which bursary awards are made. Download the SportBursaryApplication . Queries may be directed to
Wits Sport also offers a full programme of academic support - academic monitoring and regulation - to ensure its bursary-holder sportsmen and women meet their academic commitments as well. Bursary-holders may arrange a one-on-one consultation with Wits Sport bursary-academic support officer Kerry Yates by e-mail only.
