What is the difference between a bursary and a scholarship?

Question:
What is the difference between a bursary and a scholarship?
Answer:

Although the terms are sometimes used interchangeably, bursaries are usually non-competitive and automatic, often based on financial need, while scholarships are competitive and you usually, but not always, have to apply for them.
