The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a South African government initiative that provides financial aid to eligible students attending public universities and colleges. NSFAS was established in 1991 and is the primary source of funding for students from low-income households.
Our Goal is to ensure that all eligible students have access to financial assistance to enable them to complete their studies.
NSFAS is a South African Government initiative, and therefore our primary focus is on students from low-income households and historically disadvantaged backgrounds.
We also give preference to students who will be the first in their families to attend university, as well as those studying priority courses that will help improve the country’s economy and skills development.
