The bursaries provide adaptive technology to help the students fully participate and succeed in their chosen studies. Assistive technology can eliminate barriers to education and enhance access to information. It enables students to read course material, conduct research and improve their student life. 

Since the inception of the bursary scheme in 1996, over 300 students have been supported in their further education journey.
