Boston City Campus Bursary Programme was formed in 1991, when the institute opened, with the aim of producing graduates and seeing as many learners as possible through into the workplace. The programme started in Finance, aiming to increase the number of black CA’s in the country.
The bursary is awarded for studies at any Boston Media House or Boston City Campus, on an annual basis to students who have experienced sudden financial difficulties and are therefore unable to graduate. Candidates will be able to select their own field of study and career path.
Boston has a committee that evaluates every request for a bursary and then submits it to the branch managers via their SAM system. The committee considers all submissions with the aim of assisting as many applicants as possible for the campus whilst considering the financial responsibilities that the learner will need to cover.
Please note: Owing to the many expenses, bursary recipients will receive textbooks and all books on behalf of the programme provider. However, candidates will NOT be assisted with external examination fees.
