Higher education is now significantly more expensive, and more students are now having trouble paying for their studies on their own.
On behalf of the federal government, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides funding to students in need.
In order to promote equal access to education and foster a diverse and capable workforce, the government invests a sizable amount of money in higher education and training each year.
To obtain an NSFAS bursary, students must, however, meet the eligibility standards. To find out if you qualify, look at the list of requirements on the NSFAS website.
