Those seeking funding for their higher education can now apply for NSFAS funding in 2021 at National Youth Development Agency centres across South Africa. NSFAS applications for 2021 are now open and will close on 30 November 2020.
NSFAS gives eligible students the opportunity to access free government funding should they meet the criteria.
NSFAS Administrator, Randall Carolissen, said NSFAS continuously provides easy access, reachability, and free access to information by forging and retaining relationships with stakeholder partnerships.
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) offers bursaries to eligible students with disabilities. Their bursaries cover any level of tertiary education, such as first undergraduate degrees or diploma at any of South Africa’s 23 public universities.
The bursary for disabled students covers tuition, books, accommodation including meals, and an assistive device - such as a wheelchair, Zoom Text software or a Jaws Reader, computer, or any device recommended by a doctor.
A question that's often asked is: will NSFAS still fund me if I move to another University/TVET College? Well, we have the answer for you. NSFAS applications for 2021 are now open and will close on 30 November 2020.
The answer to this question is: yes, NSFAS will continue funding you.
This question deals with the N+ rule NSFAS has in place. Before NSFAS was changed from a loan scheme to a bursary, the rule was 'N+2' and after the change which came into action in 2018, it was changed to the 'N+1' rule.
NSFAS applications are currently open. Have you ever wondered if NSFAS will fund more than just one child per parent or in a household or just more than one person in your household at a time? Well, we have the answer to that question along with lots of other information.
NSFAS applications are now open. Should you be in a household where you're not the only one needing funding from NSFAS, it's then good for you to know that NSFAS will fund more than person in the household should they apply and meet the requirements.
We are here to answer all your NSFAS questions. If you find yourself wondering whether NSFAS will still fund you even if you took a year or two off and they funded you before, we have an answer for you. Don't forget that NSFAS applications are now open.
During a webinar with Careers Portal Live, NSFAS answered this question and said that gap year students, whether that be before you start your qualification or during, will still be funded by NSFAS if they were approved before and qualify.
