Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology, Dr Blade Nzimande, MP, has authorised NSFAS to open the 2020 application season for student funding from September 01, to November 30, 2019.

To qualify for government funding for university and TVET college studies, the applicant should have the following:

1.           Be a South African citizen
2.           Register at any of the 26 public universities; and 50 TVET colleges
3.           Come from a family with an income of below R350 000 per annum (combined)

Students with disabilities and students who are beneficiaries of social grants automatically qualifies for NSFAS. Students who wish to study for post-graduate studies do not qualify for NSFAS. However, we encourage them to seek funding from the National Skill Fund and the National Research Foundation.

In order to engage learners at high school, NSFAS will be employing 200 NSFAS unemployed graduate from covering the country to support the application process. These graduates will visit the high schools, and rural communities where there are no computers and internet connectivity to assist students.
