What is the National Student Financial Aid Scheme, and how does it work? (NSFAS)
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) was formed (Act 56 of 1999)
The mission statement is comprised of three distinct aspects that explain why NSFAS exists and how it affects the people it serves:
The National Student Financial Aid System (NSFAS) was established to give financial aid to eligible students attending public TVET institutes and public universities.
NSFAS finds qualified students, awards bursaries, and collects past student loan repayments in order to replenish funds for future generations of students; and
NSFAS helps students from low-income and working-class households gain access to and succeed in higher education and training.
Criteria for Qualification
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) bursary scheme is only open to South African nationals.
A student must be enrolled in or planning to enroll in a TVET college.
Applicants will be considered for financing if their combined total family income is less than R350,000 per year.
