NSFAS has embarked on a mission to assist people all over with applying for financial aid support. NSFAS officials are travelling all over during an application drive to give assistance to anyone planning on studying in 2021.
This is NSFAS’ latest efforts to help the youth of South Africa unlock their futures.
NSFAS Administrator, Dr Randall Carolissen, assisted students at the Nelson Mandela School of Science and Technology in Mvezo to successfully apply for NSFAS 2021 funding.
Dr Randall Carolissen encouraged the learners of Nelson Mandela School of Science and Technology to not let this important opportunity that could change their futures to pass them by.
Deputy Minister of Higher Education, Buti Manamela, has also been present at the application drives and even gave some words of encouragement to learners.
Carolissen told learners at Nelson Mandela School of Science and Technology, “There will be people to tell you that you are not fit to do this course, there will be people who will tell you that you will fail, but do not listen to people who tell you that you can’t, do not give up and never surrender”.
NSFAS has stated that they have strengthened their partnership with the Department of Basic Education (DBE) to, “further increase NSFAS footprint and reachability, specifically for learners in Grade 10 to 12.”
The Department’s way of doing this is to link NSFAS with Provinces and District offices and provide them with a database of National Tecahers Centres whcih will assist with applications.
Applications for NSFAS for 2021 funding are open for Grade 9 to 12 learners and out of school youth who wish to further their studies at any public TVET college or Universities across the country.
Those individuals needing help with their NSFAS applications should make sure to not waste a trip and visit the NSFAS offices as they are closed. You can however visit an NYDA centre where they will assist you with whatever you need.
Those wishing to find funding for their 2021 year of studying are advised to keep an eye on NSFAS’ social media pages as they give updates on where they’ll be visiting next and be sure to bring the required supporting documents so they can help you with your application.
Apply for NSFAS funding and let us take care of all your financial stress as you focus on your studies like your peers.#KeepingUpWithNSFAS #NSFAS2021 #UnlockYourFutureToday pic.twitter.com/SV4sFA91DZ
