Mulilo Bursary Fund 2022
Mulilo Bursary Fund was set up in 2014 that aimed at helping unprivileged students complete their education. So far, the bursaries have helped hundreds of students within the communities where Mulilo operates.
For the academic year 2022, Mulilo is accepting applications from all eligible students. The bursaries will cover all fields of study, and students can apply irrespective of the university they’re studying at (provided it’s located within the region Mulilo operates in).
The bursary will cover the following cost:
Besides that, bursars will also benefit from a monthly stipend.
There’s a long screening process that includes telephone interviews and in-person interviews. Candidates will be selected after the application review and interviews are completed.
Mulilo will announce the list of bursars by 15 January 2022.
The bursary is open to a certain group of students who meet the eligibility criteria laid out by Mulilo. Since the organization receives many applications, it cannot award the bursaries award everyone, which are limited in number.
Therefore, you must cross-check the requirements and make sure you fulfill all of them.
