NSFAS Online Application

NSFAS is currently finalising checks on funding applications received for 2021. Applications for students wanting to be funded in 2021 thorugh the National Student Financial Aid Scheme came to a total of almost 800 000.

If your application to be funded through NSFAS was rejected, you can appeal to NSFAS to reconsider it. NSFAS offers student loans and bursaries for students who qualify. 

Matric 2020 results were released today and many students may be interested in receiving funding to further their studies. There was confusion as some course names and curricula have changed with old courses no longer being funded by NSFAS - some being in education and nursing - but the new courses will still be funded.

NSFAS has started revealing to students whether their application to be funded was successful or not. If yours was unsuccessful, here are the reasons why that decision was made.

NSFAS beneficiaries are being warned about a fake NSFAS website circulating. It is very important for NSFAS beneficiaries to keep their personal information secure and not fall prey to any scams.

You may be interested in applying for NSFAS or currently funded by NSFAS and wondering whether they will continue to fund your studies if you fail. Well, keep reading to find out. 

If you're at a TVET College and you're looking for funding, NSFAS is currently holding 2021 walk-in applications. 

Looking to be funded by NSFAS? Looking to live away from home while you study? Are you now wondering if NSFAS will pay for your student accommodation? Here's the answer.

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) was established in 1991 and replaced the Tertiary Education Fund of South Africa (TEFSA) in 1999 with the gazetting of the NSFAS Act of 1999. NSFAS is fully supported by the Department of Education and training. The main aim of NSFAS is to provide financial support to eligible students to help pay for the cost of their tertiary education at any TVET college or University.

NSFAS has issued and another fraud alert, something which seems to always be happening. It is therefore important that NSFAS beneficiaries are extra careful when it comes to their NSFAS accounts.
