The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides funding for students who come from the poor and working class. 

However, do they fund students who wish to attend the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) or are attending TUT?

The answer: yes, they do.

NSFAS funds students from all of South Africa's 26 Public Universities. 

Being funded by NSFAS doesn't mean that only your fees will be paid for, it covers much more:

  • Travel allowance for students staying at home (usually R7500 paid over 10 months)
  • Accommodation allowance, for students staying at Rhodes Privately Owned Student Accommodation. (usually up to R40 000 paid over 10 months)

NSFAS is a government bursary scheme that provides funding for underprivileged students who wish to attend universities or TVET colleges.
