The universities and other Institutions play a very important role in the selection of candidates and allocation of scholarship bursary. For continuing students, the institutions can provide information on the candidate’s need situation. This way, the institutions help the Trust to give priority to the most needy students. In the case of new students, the institution’s role in determining real need guides the Trust in giving the scholarship bursary.
However, the Trust reserves the right to fund or not.
