  1. I applied for bursary last year and than i received a call after three weeks asking whether I’m already accepted from university and when am i going to start, i told him that i’m already accepted and will start this year.that call gave me a hope that i might be funded but since than i never receive any call from the offices. I’d like to know what happened because I’m one from disadvantage family n i am so in need for funding, please if the bursary is still available please notify me so that i can re-apply if i have to.
