Looking for funding to pursue your post-Matric studies? The National Student Financial Aid Scheme, better known as NSFAS, might be your answer. Keep reading to find out which courses they fund and which courses they do not.
The College of Cape Town Management team has released a statement on how NSFAS funding will be allocated to all eligible students for the year 2021. They've also given answers to how much NSFAS beneficiaries will receive as allowances.
Minister of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande, has now reiterated the fact that NSFAS beneficiaries who change courses won't have their funding affected by this move. NSFAS provides bursaries to students from poor and working class backgrounds.
Students who are funded by NSFAS will very often have their complaints centre around NSFAS allowance delays. Now, NSFAS has said that they are working on a new NSFAS allowance disbursement model to improve inefficiencies at the financial aid scheme.
