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.

 

Government allocation for NSFAS funding has increased significantly. This is according to Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande. 

After months of delays, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has confirmed that NSFAS funded students can now order laptops online.

Fundi’s corporate social investment desires to make a greater impact in transforming and enabling dreams. A percentage of the companies PAT and employee contributions is committed to give back to the community, however the demand is greater which led Fundi into creating the FundiFund foundation.
