Support UNIZULU Students Invest in Future Leaders Established in 1982, the UNIZULU (University of Zululand) Foundation is a non-profit organisation which seeks to support the University and community through initiating and sustaining long-term partnerships with donors based on identified specific needs of the two spheres. Through its constant efforts to obtain third-stream income (funds either than student fees and government grants or research awards) the Foundation has, over several years, secured funding that has culminated in countless student bursaries while also contributing towards the implementation of institutional projects. Why Support UNIZULU? UNIZULU is an institution with unique and compelling needs which include, among others, that: • 75% of our 17 544 students are financially needy. • There are inadequate student accommodation facilities on campus and in the region. • There is a lack of suitable postgraduate accommodation or study/research facilities. • 75% of our students are supported by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) but only for undergraduate study. The reality about NSFAS support is that the applications of many more students are not processed thus these students require urgent support. The Foundation is appealing to private and public institutions, alumni and individuals for support in the form of donations, grants, bursaries, learnerships and Work-integrated Learning (WIL) programmes. The latter is vital for UNIZULU’s growth as a unique institution, in a rural context, with the potential to become a vibrant and value-adding economic hub.
