Apply Now For Semester Two Funding From NSFAS



The National Student Financial Aid Scheme provides comprehensive bursaries to deserving students at public tertiary educational institutions in South Africa, which includes TVET colleges.



The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides bursaries to students from low-income backgrounds, who wish to study at a tertiary institution, but cannot afford the costs on their own. 

The bursary scheme essentially provides financial aid to thousands of deserving students.

NSFAS bursaries aim to cover all the costs related to tertiary studies. This includes paying tuition costs and accommodation costs and providing students with a Living Allowance, Personal Care Allowance, Accommodation Allowance, and Travel Allowance. 

Both university and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) students can apply for NSFAS funding.

TVET college students can apply for NSFAS funding during the available application window: 

  • Semester 2 applications are to open from the 17th of July 2023 and close on the 31st of July 2023.
  • Trimester 3 applications are to open from the 4th of September 2023 and close on the 20th of September 2023.

Applications can be done online, via the NSFAS website.

NSFAS has reminded applicants to first login and finish their application process before submitting, rather than just creating a profile and considering themselves to have applied. 

How To Apply For NSFAS

  1. Go to the NSFAS website and login
  2. Click on the 'myNSFAS' tab.
  3. Create a myNSFAS account.
  4. Click on the 'APPLY' tab and complete the sections on the screen.

NSFAS has said that the method of applications for all 2023 remaining cycles will stay the same as the one used by students to apply during the first cycle of 2023. This means that students have to submit a NSFAS application online.
