NSFAS 2024 Funding Application : Apply Now for Higher Education

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has announced the commencement of its 2024 funding application process from November 21, 2023, to January 31, 2024.

It’s a call to action for eligible students who aspire to pursue higher education to apply within the specified timeframe.

The Minister of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande, has encouraged eligible students to apply promptly. He emphasized the importance of applying for funding for public universities and colleges.

To streamline funding decisions, NSFAS is working closely with the Department of Basic Education to refine application validation, particularly in the verification of parental relationships.

This initiative aims to provide swift responses for beneficiaries of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) without requiring additional documentation, except for learners with disabilities who may need supplementary materials.

In case of rejection, applicants will have the opportunity to appeal. Rejected applicants are advised to submit the appropriate supporting documents.

An exciting development for the 2024 application period is the introduction of the NSFAS mobile application. Initially available for iOS and Android, with compatibility for HUAWEI devices to follow.

The app comes with biometric capabilities planned for a later release.

The NSFAS mobile application allows students to track their application progress and funding updates.

This can be done through WhatsApp at 078 519 8006 or via USSD at 12067327#.

These technological advancements signify NSFAS’s commitment to efficiency and aim to empower students with convenient tools for a seamless application process.

The introduction of these innovations aims to enhance accessibility and transparency for students pursuing higher education.

Don’t miss the opportunity to apply for NSFAS funding for the year 2024.
