STADIO Bursaries

STADIO endeavours to promote its mission of widening access to higher education. In doing so, STADIO seeks to provide support and acknowledgement to deserving new and existing students by way of the award of bursaries to a limited number of students on an annual basis. Some of these bursaries have already been awarded based on, inter alia, financial need and academic merit. As bursaries become available, we will publish the application details on our website and social media.

Our partnership with Manati allows for each application to be individually assessed based on the applicant’s ability to afford the monthly repayments. Manati has more lenient credit and affordability criteria compared to traditional funding providers. They also consider joint household income (spouse, partner, or family members that are employed) to help bridge the affordability gap.

Can I apply for NSFAS funding if I want to study?

No. NSFAS funding is available only to students who want to study at public universities. Many governments around the world provide funding to students directly, who can then choose to study at a registered private or public university. However, the South African government does not fund students who want to study at a private higher education institution. STADIO is a private higher education institution, therefore NSFAS (or Funza) funding is not applicable to STADIO.
