UJ NSFAS List 2023
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) was formed in terms of the National Student Financial Aid Scheme. NSFAS is a bursary scheme which provides poor and working class South African students with fully subsidised free higher education and training.
NSFAS’s vision is to provides students from poor and working class families with financial aid, to undertake studies at public universities and TVET colleges.
On 16 December 2017, former president, Jacob Zuma, announced that the South African government would phase in “fully subsidised free higher education and training for poor and working class South African students”. The funding would be phased in over a period of 5 years and thus the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) Bursary Scheme was established.
Bursary covers the following research-related costs:
- Registration Fee
- Tuition Fee
- Granted Book Allowance
- Granted Study Materials (up to a certain amount established by NSFAS)
- Accommodation Granted (up to a certain amount established by NSFAS)
- Supplemental Food Allowance
