Nsfas Disability Form Download 2023-2024
All South African students who are currently studying at the public Universities and public Tvet Colleges and those who are yet to apply are all entitled to receive bursaries from Nsfas in the year 2023. Nsfas is not selective when giving out bursaries therefore students with disability are not exempted from receiving the funds.

NSFAS will cover your tuition and registration fees and you will also receive allowances such as living allowance, transport allowance, personal/incidental allowance and a learning materials/book allowance.

Applications are currently opened to the general public, thus South African students apply for the Nsfas bursary.
