The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a government bursary that provides funding for South African students who come from poor or working-class backgrounds that plan on studying at public universities or TVET colleges. 

When you apply for NSFAS funding, applicants need to register a myNSFAS account on the NSFAS portal in order to complete the application. Your myNSFAS account will be used to track your funding and application status.

If you are experiencing issues with logging into your myNSFAS account because it says 'ID number does not exist' then NSFAS says you should re-register your NSFAS portal account. 

Once you have re-registered your account, you will be able to log into your myNSFAS portal and track your application status and funding.

The NSFAS bursary will cover the student's registration fee, tuition and provides students with various allowances. These allowances cover transport, living expenses and learning materials.

In order to qualify for NSFAS funding you must meet the following criteria: 

  • Must be a South African Citizen
  • Sassa Grant Recipients qualify immediately
  • Combined household income of R350 000 or less per annum
  • If you are living with a disability, you need to have a combined household income of R600 000 or less per annum
  • Applicants who first registered at university before 2018 whose household income is not more than R122 000 per annum.
