What Is ISFAP?
If you're wanting to study further but fall under the missing middle category, direct your attention to ISFAP. ISFAP could be your next funding solution.
ISFAP refers to the Ikusasa Student Financial Aid Programme which is a bursary scheme that is targeted towards the missing middle.
When you fall under the missing middle label, it means that you're considered too rich to qualify for funding from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) but too poor to afford to pay for your fees yourself.
This is where ISFAP can help.
ISFAP is a support and funding model for financially needy students who fall under the "poor" and "missing middle" category of students.
A missing middle student's household income will fall between R350 000 and R600 000.
The following is looked at to see if your qualify for ISFAP;
- Household income
- Academic criteria and registration
- National benchmark test
- Matric results
- Funder constraints
The ISFAP bursary will cover your tuition fees, accommodation fees, food, learning materials, living allowance and you will also receuve non-academic support.
"ISFAP plays a huge role in solving the funding challenges faces by "poor and "missing middle" students, as well as in addressing other challenges which South Africa faces, such as graduate employablity."

Are you in matric? Are you having a matric dance or matric ball this year? Need inspiration? I have compiled a list of matric dress styles that I am loving for 2021. The matric dance is one of the most important events in a student's high school career, and it is often considered to be one of the best memories of their high school career. In South Africa, the "matric dance" is equivalent to the American prom. It takes place during the matric year.
