In the light of the  challenges faced by several Universities, a number of funding organizations have pledged to assist students/graduates who may have been negatively affected by debt in their study accounts.

Kindly receive the attached call for submission with regard to FASSET bursary fund  for historical debt for HDI universities. Kindly share this information with those affected individuals who may have missed the opportunity to receive it. Please observe the deadline as contained in the documents.

 Background

  • FASSET administrated by USAF is offering us over R2 Million worth of funding for students who are under the age of 35 who have completed undergraduate Finance related qualifications and have not yet received their certificates. These are additional funding to the university if we can show the appetite by end of business on Friday, 11 February 2022 hence we request for the invitation to be broadcasted on UNIVEN Radio.  It would also be of great assistance if the information can be shared across many platforms i.e University website, emails as well as social platforms in ensuring we reach as many of the students who has debt.
