THE Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) has with effect from the 2021 academic year changed the mode of application for bursary support in Technical Education, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training Authority (TEVETA) institutions from the manual way of application to an online application system.
However, the online bursary application system is a web based system that is accessible to anyone via the internet.
It is designed to make it easier for vulnerable students to access the MoHE online TEVETA bursary facility through an intuitive interface and guided process of application.
Therefore, the ministry has advised students who wish to get bursary support for the 2021 academic year to apply through the online application system.
TEVETA stated that the bursary online application will only be accessible to vulnerable Zambians provided they attach necessary documents in support of their vulnerability.
Bursaries play an important part in encouraging participation and are used effectively, they have other wider-ranging benefits by helping to drive attainment and encourage retention among non-traditional students.
The move by MoHE to embrace online bursary applications will allow students and users to access the required functions and features irrespective of the location, time and device.
