NSFAS will soon introduce more methods of applying for the bursary. These methods will make it easier for more students the opportunity to apply for funding.
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will shortly launch additional application methods. These include WhatsApp, mobile app and USSD.
Due to come issues with these methods, NSFAS has halted these alternative application methods. These new application methods will be released to the public once they have stabilized the new system and all issues have been addressed.
NSFAS provides financial assistance to students to further their education. The bursary is available to students who meet the bursary requirements and hope to pursue their studies at public universities and TVET Colleges.
In the meantime, students may apply for the bursary online via the NSFAS website. Here is how to submit an online NSFAS application:
