Students To Receive Outstanding NSFAS Soon

Higher Education and Training Minister Naledi Pandor says the National Student Financial Aid Scheme will, over the next few days, start disbursing outstanding funds that are due to students.

Students to receive outstanding NSFAS soon

The Minister said this when she fielded questions from members of Parliament in the National Assembly.

Pandor said according to statistics that she received from newly appointed NSFAS administrator Randall Carolissen, around 63 000 students – “a majority coming from the TVET college sector”, were affected by this challenge.

“What is pleasing is that in the first seven days of the work of the administrator, we have received massive cooperation from institutions and I am really appreciative of that, as well as student organisations playing a role in ensuring that students do sign their statement of particulars because that then helps us to finalise the applications process and ensure that we have disbursements so within the next four days, we are going to see a significant disbursement of funding,” she said.
