Language Studies Bursary Scheme Research Report – Nelson Mandela University The aim of this research was to assess the impact of DAC Language Studies Bursaries on the students who received DAC Bursaries during the period 2015 to 2018. The Department of Arts and Culture is responsible for protection, preservations and support of the South African Arts, culture and heritage. To this end, bursaries were allocated made available to a number of student during the previously mentioned period in order to help the students complete their studies during the period under review. A structured questionnaire was used as a method of data collection. Two methods of data collection were applied, namely, emails and telephonic surveys. No sampling framework was formulated. The idea was to capture all students listed in the database. One hundred and ninety four (194) students were listed and only 94 could be reached and interviewed successfully.
