About Scorpion Legal Protection Bursaries 2020-2021
Scorpion Legal Protection is offering bursary schemes towards students who are currently pursuing their higher education studies within the field of Law. The Scorpion Legal Protection Bursaries is a programme designated towards full-time undergraduate students enrolled in the University of Johannesburg. In addition, only 2nd-year LLB/BCOM Law and BA Law students are allowed to participate in the bursary scheme.
Grantees of the Scorpion Legal Protection Bursaries are entitled to approximately ZAR 10 000 as financial assistance for each student. This sum of money will be used as coverage for the grantee’s tuition costs. Since this is a partial bursary, candidates are highly encouraged to search for other financial sources so that their other study-related needs can be fulfilled. If you wish to study under the bursary again for the following year, you can have the scheme renewed. However, grantees must display impressive academic merits in order to qualify for annual renewal.
All funding provided by the Scorpion Legal Protection will not be directly paid towards the grantees, but it will be transferred to their institutions instead. Therefore, no amount of the fun will be given out in cash. This also means that students are not eligible for any cash refunds. On top of that, candidates are strictly disallowed to use the financial assistance to pay off their personal debts. In the event a grantee fails any one of their subjects, the bursary will not provide coverage for said subject.
