SIM Global Education Bursary

The SIM GE Bursary aims to provide financial assistance to needy students studying at SIM Global Education (GE). This award is given based on our eligibility criteria, as well as the assessed level of neediness of the applicants.

The decision of SIM Global Education is final and we do not enter into any correspondence on the award of the SIM GE Bursary (including the reasons for not awarding the SIM GE Bursary).


The list of recipients for each award will be determined by the bursary selection panel, based on applicants’ assessed PCI and the eligibility criteria. Not all eligible applications will be guaranteed an award.
