As the deadline for the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) application cycle is fast approaching, NSFAS has embarked on an intensified outreach programme visiting communities across the country to assist applicants who have not yet applied for funding.
The purpose of the outreach programmes is to provide access to individuals who do not have access to internet facilities, and opportunities to further their studies, specifically areas and provinces with low applications statistics.
Applicants in the identified locations and surrounding areas are encouraged to visit the apply with us activation centres to submit their applications online. NSFAS agents will be present during the activations to assist applicants with their online applications. Applicants are reminded to bring all supporting documents when visiting the application activations.
Applicants are also urged to visit their nearest National Youth Developing Agency (NYDA) centres and the Department of Basic Education (DBE) District Teacher Centres national wide. These centres will remain fully functional till the closing date of November 30, 2020 to assist applicants with their online NSFAS applications.
