A bursary can change a life forever

Receiving a school bursary award can be a pivotal moment in a young person’s learning life. It’s wonderful to see an independent education made possible for families that qualify for financial assistance towards school fees.
Bursary Assessment Associates provides the link between the school and the family, managing the bursary application and assessment process in an impartial, insightful and joined up way.
Our down-to-earth, experienced team combines serious financial knowledge and educational expertise. We have the capacity to handle thousands of bursary applications every year, and each application is managed personally by a qualified associate.
We oversee the entire process on behalf of the school, backed by Secure Apply, our online application management portal. From bursar’s briefing through to application review, assessment, data analysis, home visits, reporting and recommendations, we support school and family through a robust process. Good communication is an essential part of the process. We make it our priority to keep everyone involved in the loop.
Our role is much more than school bursary administration – we focus on the people behind the process and create pathways to educational opportunities that change lives.
