    I am a 2nd year student of software development with a 80% average at the end of the 1st semester, I am looking for a bursary for my 3rd year studies and potentially 4th aswell, where should I look?

      The best option is to try to get the application form from Telkom’s office that is nearest to you.
      Another thing: the link to the bursary page seems to be broken 🙁 but I have contacted someone at Telkom, so let’s hope all will be sorted out soon.
