Welcome to NSFAS
National Student Financial Aid Scheme of South Africa
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme of South Africa (NSFAS) is determined to make a difference in our land by providing a sustainable financial aid system for study loans and bursaries, allowing academically deserving and financially needy students to realise their potential and hopes for the future.
NSFAS is unique to South Africa.
At NSFAS, we are very aware of the role that we must play to turn dreams into reality.
Education is the great engine to personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become a head of a mine, that the child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.
