#FundAFuture and make a difference


“The single most important investment any country can make is in its people.”
– National Development Plan 2030


South Africa’s National Development Plan states that universities play a key role in developing our nation. However, the cost of higher education hinders most of our youth from transcending their circumstances. 

In order to help increase the amount of lives transformed through higher education, the University of the Free State (UFS) has launched its nationwide Student Bursary Fund Campaign.

“I believe the best way to break the cycle of poverty in South African families is to ensure that talented first-generation students gain access to high-quality university degree training,” said Prof Jonathan Jansen, former Vice-Chancellor and Rector of the UFS. 

Student Bursary Fund Campaign

The campaign aims to raise R100 m to fund talented, deserving students who do not have the financial means to obtain a university degree.

Your support is crucial

The university cannot do this alone, though. We need your support and generosity to change the landscape of our youth’s future.

The impact of your financial support reaches far beyond its monetary value. It pulls families from poverty. It sends forth experts and visionaries into the world. It sets in motion a culture of giving.

It irrevocably changes the futures of individuals, of communities, and ultimately of our country.


Each contribution will bring us closer to our goal of R100 m.
