The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a government loan and bursary fund for students who receive NSFAS support. Late in the year, students can apply and register for NSFAS, with the NSFAS closing date usually occurring in the next calendar year.
More than merely paying your tuition, NSFAS provides financial assistance to students from low-income and working-class families. Through NSFAS allowances, they’ll also cover the costs of your registration, lodging, transportation, and textbooks.
What are the NSFAS Guidelines?
The most critical factor is that your annual household income must not exceed R350 000. A household income greater than R350 000 will exclude you from receiving benefits under this scheme.
NSFAS bursary applications are typically submitted through myNSFAS by current and prospective students.
This is where students can keep their NSFAS allowances: in their personal wallets. Directly through NSFAS, students can withdraw or spend their allowances at any participating trader.
All of the information you need concerning NSFAS applications, allowances, and NSFAS may be found on the Careers Portal.
