National Student Financial Aid Scheme or NSFAS for short is one of the organizations that open bursaries to help students continue their educations. The NSFAS funding is proven successful from the facts that the funding has grown from 441 million (1999) to 8.9 billion (2013). That’s a significant change that is worth nothing, right? Absolutely. In order to get the bursary however, you must meet the requirements of these two main requirements though. First of all, only South African student is allowed to apply and you must abide to the rules set by the university you have chosen and you also must submit the proof of acceptance at the university of your choice as well. If you want to apply, aside from the application and proof of acceptance at those universities, you must include ID document, grade 12 results, Parent/Guardian’s ID and employment documents. Most of your expense related to your college and even, life expense, will be the responsibility of NSFAS such as the tuition fees, accommodation and meals fees, travel fees, and also, the prescribed books fees. The maximum amount of the value is R60000/year. That is all, visit http://www.nsfas.org.za/content/bursaries.html for more info.
