Applications for NSFAS Last Chance funding will close tomorrow. This funding window was for 2021 funding and has never been done before.

Should applicants be successful, they would then have their 2021 fees paid for as well as future years of study. They would therefore not have to apply for 2022 funding as their funding will continue.

This funding window is open to students who are currently registered at one of South Africa's 26 Public Universities and have no other financial aid, but meet NSFAS requirements.

Students need to have a household income which is between R0 and R350 000. Students who are living with disabilities need to have a household income which falls between R0 and R600 000.

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.

NSFAS opened up the period of 18 August until 3 September for students to apply for this special funding window.
