Do you want to submit an application for the NSFAS bursary but don’t know where to begin? We can help, then! Here is everything you need to know about applying for NSFAS funding.
A government bursary known as the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) helps financially disadvantaged students who want to attend public universities or TVET colleges.
Because it covers the costs of registration, tuition, and various allowances, it is the tertiary funding in South Africa that is most sought after. Transportation, living expenses, and educational materials are covered by these allowances.
They also pay for on-campus and private housing for students who live far from their universities of choice.
Before the president announced free education in December 2017, students funded by the NSFAS loan must repay the loan amount in accordance with the signed loan agreement form.
Because they are funded by the NSFAS bursary scheme, those who began funding with NSFAS in 2018 and later do not have to repay the organization.
In an effort to make it easier for potential applicants to apply, the NSFAS bursary application procedure evolves annually.
NSFAS funding can now be applied for online.
