The Namibian Support Bursary Fund

Financial support for university students has become increasingly important as most families are struggling to keep up with covering student fees. This is, unfortunately, the current reality for some of the Namibian students studying at our University. Lingering debt may put them on the back foot and hamper their capacity to contribute to a talented workforce. In addition, the current funding models do not meet the needs of a growing student cohort, and the shifting economic landscape calls for the development of new models for financing student support.

This prompted us to action and in 2022, we launched a fund that could support financially needy Namibian students with either registration fees (at the beginning of the year), or with settling their student debt by the time of graduation. The #Maties4Namibia support fund aims to ensure that students – all of whom meet the academic requirements for entry into their chosen courses – are given top-up financial support to cover the cost of their degrees. By offering this support to these talented students, we ensure our contribution to knowledge production on our continent, thereby maintaining the University’s commitment to excellence. The support fund can be used to cover registration fees or graduation debt.

You can make a difference in the lives of our Namibian students by donating to the Namibian Support Bursary Fund. Your donation will go a long way in helping to provide debt relief to academically deserving Namibian students.

Finansiële steun vir universiteitstudente raak al hoe belangriker, aangesien die meeste gesinne sukkel om met studiekostes tred te hou. Dit is ongelukkig tans die werklikheid vir sommige van die Namibiese studente wat aan ons Universiteit studeer. Agterstallige skuld kan hulle op die agtervoet plaas en hulle vermoë om tot ʼn talentvolle werksmag by te dra, belemmer. Die huidige finansieringsmodelle voldoen ook nie aan die behoeftes van die groeiende studentegetalle nie en die veranderinge op ekonomiese gebied noodsaak die ontwikkeling van nuwe modelle vir die finansiering van steun aan studente.

Dit het ons tot optrede aangespoor en in 2022 het ons ʼn fonds bekendgestel wat finansieel behoeftige Namibiese studente met registrasiegelde (aan die begin van die jaar), of die aflos van hulle studieskuld met graduering kan bystaan. Die #Maties4Namibia-bystandsfonds is daarop gemik om seker te maak dat studente – wat almal aan die akademiese vereistes vir toelating tot hulle gekose kursusse voldoen – aanvullende finansiële steun ontvang om die koste van hulle grade te dek. Deur hierdie talentvolle studente te ondersteun, verseker ons dat ons tot kennisproduksie op ons vasteland bydra en sodoende die Universiteit se verbintenis tot uitnemendheid handhaaf. Die bystandsfonds kan gebruik word om registrasiegelde of skuld met graduering te dek.

Jy kan ʼn verskil in die lewens van ons Namibiese studente maak deur jou skenking aan die Namibiese Bystandsbeursfonds. Jou skenking sal baie help om die skuld van akademies verdienstelike Namibiese studente te verlig.
