The process forward
All students from families with a gross household income of less than R350 000 per year, qualify for a NSFAS-Bursary that cover their full cost which include (tuition, residence, allowances for meals, personal care and learning material). Students living with their parents, qualify for a living and transport allowance.
All the applications that we received will be verified in terms of financial information and academic results until the 1st of March 2021.
In addition, we will share your information with potential donors of various other bursary funds. The outcome of this extensive allocation process will be communicated to all applicants by the 14th of May 2021.
If you were a successful candidate, the bursary or bursaries/loan that you may qualified for, will be activated and paid into your student fee account by the 21st of May 2021, before the last day for the payment of at least 75% of your study fees on the 31st of May 2021.
Nominations to external funders are done throughout the course of the year and therefore you may qualify for funds at any point in the year.
