TVETS College Bursaries 2025

Are you looking forward to applying to TVET College yet lacking financial funds? TVET College bursaries are the best option for you.

TVET College Bursaries are financial assistance programs or scholarships provided by Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges to students pursuing vocational or technical education. TVETs are educational institutions that give hands-on training and practical skills training in a variety of sectors such as engineering, healthcare, trades, information technology, and others. In this context, bursaries are financial prizes given to qualifying students to assist in covering the costs of their education, such as tuition, study materials, transportation, and even housing.

These bursaries are intended to make education more accessible to people who may otherwise be unable to pursue vocational or technical training due to financial constraints. If you want to continue your studies but don’t have the funds, and you have an excellent academic record that you have maintained throughout the year, you may be qualified to apply for a bursary. Bursaries are given to Matric students who will be attending University or College the following year, as well as current tertiary students who cannot afford to continue paying for their studies.
