About us

The Centre for Undergraduate Bursaries and Loans (CUBL) forms part of the Finance division at Stellenbosch University (SU) with the primary function of awarding and managing bursaries according to agreed criteria.

The mandate of CUBL is aligned to the following institutional principles regarding the financial support of students:

  • enhancing student success through financial support
  • promoting student diversity by granting bursaries to students from, among others, the designated race groups and socio-economically disadvantaged environments, and to students with disabilities
  • enhancing academic excellence by offering attractive financial support to top students, and
  • funding support to students with financial need

Our team of professional financial aid practitioners are committed to broadening access to higher education by informing prospective and current undergraduate students about funding opportunities available to ensure that no academically deserving student is prevented from further study due to financial need. We understand the application process can be stressful and we aim to provide support on a continuous basis to ensure a positive experience throughout.

This support includes

  • responding to enquiries from students, parents, companies, and donors timeously
  • providing guidance and assisting students with financial planning
  • awarding and allocating available funds
  • financial management of financial aid: internal funds (SU funding) and external bursaries from companies and donors (SU external donor funding)
  • advertising available financial aid (refer to the University Yearbook, Part 2 Bursaries and Loans)
