If you're looking for funding for your studies, NSFAS could be your solution. NSFAS bursaries go beyond just covering your fees.

So do you need to be vaccinated to qualify for a NSFAS bursary? 

The answer is: no, you don't need to be vaccinated.

The only requirements for a NSFAS bursary are:

  • South African citizen or permanent resident
  • Must be applying to a University or TVET College or be a student already
  • Household income for able bodied individuals must come to R350 000 or less per year
  • Household income for people living with disabilities must come to R600 000 or less

If you're a SASSA grant beneficiary, you immediately qualify.

The NSFAS bursary will pay for your registration and tuition fees, accommodation, transport, books and other living costs.

NSFAS applications have to be submitted through myNSFAS with additional documents having to be submitted for your application to be complete.

A good thing to know is that NSFAS does not have an age limit. However, NSFAS will only fund your first degree and does not cover postgrad degrees or short courses.
