The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a government institution which is responsible for providing NSFAS bursaries and loans to students who come from poor and working class backgrounds. NSFAS funding goes beyond just covering tuition fees as it covers registration, accommodation, transport, learning materials as well as other student needs.

This NSFAS funding extends to both public university and TVET College students. 

NSFAS has now released the 2024 NSFAS application dates for TVET Colleges. Due to TVET Colleges following a different academic timeline, NSFAS has had to avail application dates for each trimester and semester.
