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.

 

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has announced the completion of all assessments of the 2019 applications of first time students.

It has been announced that NSFAS will open for applications for funding of students in the 2019 academic year.

You may have read recently that NSFAS would be changing the way applications worked. The organisation has adopted what they call a Student Centered Model, completely overhauling the applications system. So what does this mean for you?

Caught in the gap between the rich and poor, the missing middle faces a unique set of challenges when applying for university funding.
