National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will be cutting funding from some programmes this year but there are other options for students who qualify for the national support scheme.

NSFAS

Since 2018 NSFAS has been helping students further their education by providing them with bursaries to study at public tertiary institutions. To find out if you qualify for an NSFAS bursary even though you are currently employed, keep on reading.

NSFAS applications were scheduled to close on 30 November 2020, but after receiving more than 600 000 applications, a new application deadline has been set.

The NSFAS N+ Rule has been around for some time, making the lives of some students difficult. Students said this rule has been negatively affecting them, as some were not able to finish their degrees with funding from NSFAS. 

NSFAS laptops have been taking a bit longer than expected. Minister Blade Nzimande has finally given some good news to students who have been waiting for months for devices. 

Solidarity Youth has decided to file an urgent court application against NSFAS. Some students were reportedly kicked off the bursary scheme without much notice and this has caused outrage.
