DENOSA Bursaries 2023

Applications are open for interested and suitably qualified candidates for the DENOSA Bursaries 2023. The entire application details for the DENOSA Bursaries can be accessed below.


DENOSA Bursaries

DENOSA invites students to apply for Bursaries Programme 2023 academic year.

Bursaries will be awarded to fully paid‑up members of DENOSA, for Nursing studies towards the following courses:

  • Bridging courses and short courses
  • Community nursing science
  • Community health nursing, psychiatric nursing and geriatric nursing
  • Postgraduate studies (at a University or Technikon)
  • Clinical Master’s degree programme

The bursary award will only cover a small portion of tertiary expenses, therefore students are required to have funding for the shortfall.

Bursary recipients will be required to reapply for funding each year, and funding will be granted based on academic performance.

Applicants will receive feedback on whether their application was successful, from April 2023.

Bursary recipients must submit progress reports to the secretary, by no later than 14 February each year, until the end of the course of study.
