UFS amends formula for the allocation of merit bursaries

Prospective and current students encouraged to excel academically.

The University of the Free State (UFS) has amended the formula for the allocation of academic merit bursaries. The decision to amend the allocation was taken, inter alia, to encourage prospective and current students to excel academically.

Regarding new first-year students, academic merit bursaries will be awarded as follows as from 2016:

Admission Point 38 − 41 or M-score of 43 − 46 = R5 050

Admission Point 42 or M-score of 47 = R7 850

Admission Point 43+ or M-score of 48 = R13 500

Regarding senior undergraduate and postgraduate students, the calculation factor used for the calculation of academic merit bursary amounts will be amended at the end of 2015 from .80 to .50 for 2016.
