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.
Higher Education, Science and Technology Minister Dr Blade Nzimande has urged students who qualify to be funded by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) to submit their applications for 2020 on time.
The cost of higher education has sky-rocketed over the years and more students are finding it impossible to fund their studies without some help.
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme(NSFAS) administers funding on behalf of the national government to students in need of financial support.
Each year government allocates a substantial amount of money toward the higher education and training sector in order to promote equal access to education and developed a diversified and skilled workforce.
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?
