Bursary  Application Requirements 2023

Applicants who wish to apply for the 2023-2024 Nsafs funds can now do that because the application windows are currently open.

Nsfas makes it clear to all applicants that, if they dont meet the requirements for application, their application will be denied. The application doors for Nsfas will be opened for the year 2023 to all applicants from the 2nd of November 2022 and closes on the 21st of January 2023.
