Scholarship Description
The University of Cape Town (UCT) is thankful to Ardi Louw for the Ardi Louw Scholarship for its continued support for financially needy students.

The University allocates significant funds on an annual basis for bursary funding for financially needy students; however, the demand is far greater than the funds available. With the generous donations of the Ardi Louw Scholarship, it has been possible to assist more students than would otherwise have been possible.

In short, UCT provides a non-repayable bursary and a repayable National Student Financial Aid Scheme loan to those that qualify.
