NSFAS Applications For 2021 Funding Window Now Open


NSFAS has opened applications for 2021 funding to a select group of students. Keep reading to find out who can apply and how applications for this period will work.


Today is the first day NSFAS is taking applications for 2021 funding from students who qualify but did not apply during last year's NSFAS application period.

This application window closes on 3 September 2021.

Who can apply?

Students who didn't apply for NSFAS this year but are eligible and need the funding. These students should be without any form of bursary and financial support to be eligible. 

You will also need to be registered to be studying at a Public University this year.

How will the NSFAS applications work for this?

Students are urged to submit their names to the Financial Aid Office at their respective University.

Universities will then need to compile a list of students that qualify for NSFAS but do not have any form of funding and have not been able to apply for funding.

Students who qualify for this round of funding should have their names submitted by the University which means that the student can't submit the application directly to NSFAS.

After the University submits this list, NSFAS will then open up the system for those students only.

NSFAS applications for 2022 will open after this window closes as applications usually open in September and will then close in November.
