NSFAS is short for the National Student Financial Aid Scheme. NSFAS is run by the government and assists qualifying students by paying for full fees, accomodation, books, allowances etc for college and university study. NSFAS applications are now made online so there is no need for NSFAS applications forms these days. All SA citizens are eligible to apply for NSFAS funding and can apply by opening an account on the MyNsfas student portal.
