The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (Nsfas) has revealed that many students who started the process of submitting a Nsfas application have not completed their applications.

Applications for Nsfas bursaries for the 2023 academic year are already open. In the last two months alone, the financial aid scheme received more than 230,000 bursary applications from students.

The financial aid scheme revealed that some students had started the application process by creating a myNsfas account. However, doing this does not mean that students have submitted a Nsfas bursary application.

They explained that simply creating a myNsfas account does not mean that you applied for funding. Students who wish to apply for a Nsfas bursary will have to log into their myNsfas account and follow the prompts to submit their funding application.

“Please note that creating a myNSFAS account does not mean you have applied for funding. After creating an account, you need to log in to your myNSFAS account using your ID number and password, click on the apply now button, and follow the steps to apply” declared the bursary scheme. Once you have applied you can then run a NSFAS status check.

Nsfas provides comprehensive bursaries to students from poor and working-class backgrounds every year. Many of the students who receive a Nsfas bursary come from households that would be unable to absorb the costs that come with tertiary education.

Students must be attending or intending to register to study an approved course at a public university or Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college to qualify for Nsfas bursaries.

The Nsfas application period for funding for the 2023 academic year will close on 31 January 2023. Students are encouraged to submit bursary applications before this critical deadline.
