Applications will remain open between 01 August 2016 and 30 November 2016.
To all current university/ TVET college students already funded by NSFAS
NSFAS is in a process to receive all your information and details from the university/college where you are currently enrolled.
You will be automatically migrated to the student-centred model, and will be notified by SMS/post once NSFAS has received and registered your details.
To all current university/TVET college students, who are not funded by NSFAS, but intend to apply for NSFAS assistance for the 2017 academic year
All the above mentioned students – including those who were previously on a government funded bursary programme not offered by NSFAS – can apply for NSFAS financial assistance for the 2017 academic year from 01 September 2016 to 30 November 2016.
