The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides students with a NSFAS wallet which allows NSFAS-funded students at certain tertiary institutions, to withdraw cash or spend it at any merchant registered by NSFAS.

Allowance amounts are determined through consultation with institutions, communicated to NSFAS when you register.
