Bursary Support Programme
At Fundi, we understand that students need more than academia to succeed. That’s why we offer a support programme that is designed to help students transition successfully from high school through to tertiary – then to the workplace and ultimately to developing their careers.
Fundi’s Bursary Support Programme is geared towards enabling students to successfully complete their studies. We do this by incorporating academic, psycho-social and career development support to ensure a holistic learning and support system.

Cashless Devices: FundiCard
Our innovative, smart card technology is trusted by leading education institutions and over 2 570 retail outlets.
The FundiCard acts like a debit card, but with a controlled pocket system to manage how sponsored funds are spent, providing students with the ideal cashless solution for all their academic needs.
Funds are instantly available to the recipient and can be managed from anywhere at any time. Students are able to pay for tuition, books, accommodation, technology, meals and more. This keeps accounting and reporting simple.
Cashless Devices: FundiPay
FundiPay is a cashless payment solution that gives learners and parents a safe and convenient way to make school-related purchases.
FundiPay provides a safe alternative to carrying cash, by enabling parents or sponsors to transfer money into a learners account, to make payments for school-related items like food, clothing, events, uniforms, fees and more.
Connecting to FundiPay is simple. Parents can allocate funds into a learner’s cash pocket for food, clothing, events or stationery.
School merchants such as tuck-shops and uniform shops can install the FundiPay App on their cellphones. Payment is processed within seconds and is secure.
