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 2021 academic year, open on the 1st April 2020 and close on 31 August 2020. Please complete the online form here . Please note that only online applications will be accepted. Queries may be directed to the relevant sports officer (list of contact details available under the contact us tab).

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.
