OSS Bursary Fund

This is to be available to new students as well as existing ones. The overall goal of this fund is to enable very promising students to attend the school that would not otherwise be able to because of financial constraints.

Those interested in applying for a bursary should write to the school administrator. Applications can be submitted at any time.
