"Dr Carolissen has been an integral part in the realisation of a much improved NSFAS, refining of critical skills, and forwarding thinking,” said Minister Blade Nzimande of the NSFAS Administrator.

This will see NSFAS provide those who are funded, those who wish to be funded and those who are only hearing about NSFAS for the first time easy accessibility, reachability, and free access to information.

On NSFAS applications, Minister Nzimande said, "We have opened in August. Previously, we have opened in September till the 30th of November so we are giving four months now instead of three months like we have done before" and that this is being done because of the challenges Covid has brought and to ensure that there is enough space and time to deal with whatever issues will arise.
