NSFAS

 

NSFAS is the National Student Financial Aid Scheme which is a government loan and bursary fund for students through the NSFAS fundingNSFAS application and registration opens in the later part of the year for students with the NSFAS closing date usually being in the next calendar year.

NSFAS gives bursaries to students from poor and working class backgrounds which goes beyond just paying for your fees. They’ll also pay for your registration, accommodation, transport, books through NSFAS allowances.
