NSFAS Will Open Trimester 2 Applications Tomorrow

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme is responsible for the DHET Bursary Scheme, which we call the NSFAS bursary. NSFAS bursary applications will open tomorrow for Trimester 2 bursaries.

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will open applications for TVET College students to study in Trimester 2 tomorrow. They will then close on 19 August, giving students just over a week to apply.

This application period is only for those wishing to study during Trimester 2 at one of South Africa’s 55 Public TVET Colleges.

NSFAS has advised students to apply online or through TVET college bursary offices. Here are the ways students can apply:

  1. Walk-in online application platform (superuser)
  2. Students capture their application at their college computer lab
  3. Assistive capture application platform

The application will then be captured by a TVET official on behalf of the student. When applying, students will be required to provide the following supporting documents:

  1. Copy of South African birth certificate/copy of ID document/Temporary ID of the student
  2. Copy of South African birth certificate/copy of ID document/Temporary ID of parent(s)/guardian/spouse
  3. Proof of income (where applicable) – student/parent(s)/guardian or spouse (not older than 3 months.
  4. SASSA recipients have no proof of income required.

Students who were listed as a ‘Vulnerable child’ will also need to submit a Vulnerable Child Declaration Form from a social worker.

If the applicant is living with a disability, they would then need to submit a Disability Annexure A form, along with the rest of the required documents.

Students should visit the NSFAS website to track their applications. Those who have applied for NSFAS during the walk-in application period will not be required to fill out the NSFAS system access form. They will only need to send an email to [email protected] for their account to be re-activated.
