Criteria for bursaries from the Kovsie Alumni Trust Bursary Fund

The University of the Free State greatly values the loyal support it has received from Kovsie Alumni Trust (KAT) donors over
the past 21 years, enabling students to study at the UFS. There is no better investment than creating opportunities for
talented young people to access quality higher education. Thank you for making this investment.

During the past few months, the university and KAT trustees have reviewed the policies and procedures related to the Kovsie
Alumni Bursary Fund. Such reviews are necessary from time to time to ensure compliance with UFS policies as well as
relevant legislative requirements. The review has resulted in refining the criteria for students to be considered for bursaries
from the Kovsie Alumni Trust Bursary Fund.

In future, undergraduate and honours students at the UFS are eligible to apply for support from the Kovsie Alumni Trust.
Awards are subject to the availability of funding, and are based on criteria and points as set out below. The minimum points
required will be determined from year to year.

Donors themselves are not eligible to apply for bursaries. They may, of course, encourage students or prospective students
to apply and support applications with testimonials. The new criteria will ensure that donors to the Kovsie Alumni Trust
continue to receive tax benefits under South African income tax legislation.

Thank you again for the contribution you are making to the development of talented students and, therefore, to the
development of our country. We hope that you will continue to support the KAT and the UFS. Please feel free to contact
