University of KwaZulu-Natal, Master of Town & Regional Planning, 2020, Fifth Year (Graduating in 2021)
Total funding needed R 162,522.66
Currently an enthusiastic “Master of Town and Regional Planning” postgraduate student at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, a focused and hard-working individual with definite abilities in planning and organizational decision-making. I hereby appeal for financial assistance to pay off my tuition fees.
Ever since my early school days, I have always been a hard-working individual who remained focused on the ultimate goal - passing with excellent marks. I believe that it is this focus that separates me from many of my peers, and motivates me to work harder each day, to prosper and reach greater heights. I could give you a thousand reasons to motivate my application, but the most important one is that I absolutely love Urban Planning.
Throughout my tenure at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, I have faced financial constraints and the burden of not knowing my academic results. However, I’ve always remained focused on my studies, but I fear that my current financial situation could prevent me from finishing my degree and living my dream, as my family are unable to pay for my varsity expenses. The creation of sustainable human settlements is one the fundamental reasons that fuel my desire to become an “Urban Planner” I aspire to help achieve adequate shelter for rapidly growing urban population and for the currently deprived urban and rural communities through an enabling approach to shelter development and improvement.
Receiving this financial assistance would be a step closer to the realization of my dream, as I’d be able to acquire skills that I thus believe would entrust me to help move South Africa forward. I believe that it is an exciting time to be living in South Africa, as we are an up and coming nation. As we grow, so will our need for youth development skills within our communities. Thank you for taking the time to read my application. I hope that it has helped sway your decision in my favour. I am eagerly anticipating your positive response.
