The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is giving students a chance to apply for 2021 funding through their Last Chance Applications programme.

This funding window is for students who are currently registered to be studying in 2021 and have no financial aid covering their fees.

However, are TVET students included in this application period?

NSFAS answered this question saying:

No, the board has opened this window for students who are registered at universities only.

This means that students who are studying at TVET Colleges cannot apply and it is only for students who are registered and studying at one of the 26 Public Universities in the country.

This Last Chance Applications period will close on 3 September.

NSFAS made this possible after student leaders made them aware of there being students who are eligible for NSFAS funding but aren't funded by NSFAS.

The board then went and looked at whether they have the budget for this and also considered the impact Covid-19 has had on financial circumstances on families. This is the first time in history that the financial aid scheme has implemented this kind of action.
