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."
