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.
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.
NSFAS-Funded students who qualify to receive allowances directly from NSFAS will receive cash funds in their NSFAS Wallets. If your NSFAS Wallet is locked, no worries. Here's why and how to unlock it.
Your NSFAS Wallet will allow you to withdraw cash or spend at any merchant registered by NSFAS. Allowance amounts are determined through consultation with institutions, communicated to NSFAS when you register.

It's that time of the year again as NSFAS opened their applications for funding in 2021. However, this bursary isn't open to just anyone. Here's who shouldn't send in that application to NSFAS.
NSFAS has opened their applications for students and prospective students to apply for funding for the 2021 academic year. However, not everyone can get this bursary. Here's who shouldn't apply to receive the bursary.
First and foremost, it's important to remember that if you are currently funded by NSFAS, you do not need to apply for 2021 funding.
NSFAS provides financial aid to students from poor and working-class families. However, there are rules for when you're funded by NSFAS. One is the N+2 rule.
The N+2 rule means that students only have N+2 years to finish a degree. “N” is the minimum number of years allocated to complete a qualification (i.e. record time). The “+2” refers to the extra two years that a student may need to complete the qualification (making the maximum time).
