NSFAS process funding applications
AS the 2018 tertiary education academic year begins, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is working around the clock to finalize applications for funding. The scheme said it has received more than 374 729 applications, and is now busy finalizing the processing and evaluation of the applications it received during the first phase which closed on 30 November 2016.
“We have already started communicating application results for the first phase from last week and will continue to do so via SMS and email,” said NSFAS.
The scheme said it has started sending feedback messages to the majority of students who applied last year.
“There are still some who have not yet received feedback but we will be doing that progressively throughout the week. Some of the applications had outstanding documents and that is what caused the delay in their processing.”
For those who submitted applications from 9 January 2018 (second phase), the outcome of applications will be communicated from 1 February 2018.
- The closing date for university students is 20 January, while for TVET colleges it is 14 February.
