We Are Now Finalising Funding Lists, says NSFAS



As the 2024 academic year begins for numerous students, some are still sorting out their NSFAS funding. Now, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme has issued an update on the matter.




The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) plays a vital role in providing financial assistance to students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds through bursaries and student loans.

With the recent closure of NSFAS 2024 applications, many students are eagerly awaiting updates on their funding status.

NSFAS 2024 applications opened on 21 November 2023 and closed on 28 February  2024, witnessing an overwhelming response with nearly 2 million applications received for NSFAS bursaries.

Several students have reported encountering difficulties with their NSFAS status, particularly with statuses such as 'Application in Progress' and 'Awaiting Evaluation'.

When seeking updates from NSFAS, students have received assurances that funding is being finalized, and regular updates to the funded list are underway.

Students who find their status unchanged or are unsure about their NSFAS status are advised to consider submitting an appeal.

NSFAS clarifies that they are actively processing appeals and urge students to monitor their appeal status via the myNSFAS portal.
