NSFAS Appeals


Funding from the governments bursary scheme is given to thousands of deserving students each year but not every candidate will be eligible for funding, and their application may be rejected. The scheme has provided an update on appeal applications.

Funding from the government bursary scheme is provided to thousands of deserving students every year. However, all students submitting applications may not be eligible for financial aid or may lose their funding due to academic circumstances. 

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme more than one million applications from prospective bursary recipients, and approximately 300 000 applications were rejected. Rejected applicants were allowed to submit an appeal.


NSFAS has received over 1,5 million applications for the 2023 academic year, and over 300,000 of these applications have been unsuccessful. The bursary scheme has urged rejected applicants to lodge an appeal.

At the start of each academic year, students who have been assessed as unsuccessful by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme have the opportunity to submit an appeal disputing the scheme’s funding decision.

If you feel your NSFAS application was wrongfully rejected, you have one last chance to appeal.
