NSFAS Bursary 2017 – 2018

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides loans and gives various NSFAS bursaries to students at all 25 of our public universities, as well as the 50 public FET (Further Education Training) colleges. Instead of having to repay the monetary value as with loans, bursars who apply for a NSFAS bursary will enter into a contract to work in a specific sector in South Africa for a specified amount of time after their graduation.

NSFAS has been highly successful in helping to educate the youth; available funding has grown from R441 million in 1999 to a whopping R8.5 billion in 2013.

NSFAS Bursary Requirements for Application

The following basic requirements must be met in order to apply for any of the NSFAS bursaries; applicants must:

  • Be South African citizens
  • Comply with the entry requirements set by the universities of their choice / have proof of registration or acceptance to said university

Once successfully awarded the bursary, students must pass all courses and complete the qualification within the minimum time frame prescribed by the particular university to avoid the risk of having to repay the bursary amount.

In some cases, bursars may be required to report their particular NSFAS bursary exam results in order to continue to receive funding.

All applications will require certified copies of the following:

  • ID document
  • Grade 12 results
  • Parent/guardian’s ID and employment documents (salary slips/pensions slips if applicable/affidavit if unemployed)
  • Proof of university acceptance/registration

NSFAS Bursary Package

Unless otherwise stated, the bursary fund will allow for a portion of, if not all of, the following study-related costs:

  • Tuition
  • Accommodation
  • Meals
  • Travel
  • Prescribed books/study material

The amounts prescribed for the above-mentioned costs will be dependent on the outcome of the NSFAS Means Test. This test assesses to what extent the student’s family can contribute – mainly through determining the gross annual family income. Students can qualify for varying amounts up to the maximum of R60 000 per year.

5. Bursary for Students with Disabilities

This bursary program, conducted through the Department of Higher Education and Training, is applicable to disabled students who wish to study in all fields, as long as they are accredited higher and further education and training programs. Candidates must also be academically able and financially needy (as determined by the NSFAS Means Test or at the discretion of the Disability Support Unit).

In terms of defining a disability, it is regarded as a long-term impairment (has lasted or is likely to persist for at least 12 months) that is recurring and substantially limiting. For this program, chronic diseases are also included as a disability; these include HIV/AIDS, diabetes, asthma, cancer and tuberculosis (TB).

The NSFAS bursary also covers the costs of an assistive device or human support that the student needs in order to improve their quality of life.

Zambia Scholarship Fund Bursaries 2018-2019

About the Zambia Scholarship Fund

In 1998, Peggy Rogers lay down the ground work for the Zambia scholarship fund, as she saw the need that was and still is present within Zambia for education. Primarily the fund aided high school students to complete their high school career and to then study further as teachers. Thus, supplying greatly needed teachers to rural areas. This program began with funding of only ten students, however as the funding grew so did the possibilities.

The Zambia Scholarship/Bursary program has provided more than a thousand ton of books to school throughout Zambia, shipped from the USA. Additionally, it has also funded more than a 1000 students over the course of the last ten years, these included high school and college students.

The ZSF provides aid on all levels of education, working together with the current educational structure in Zambia. The main aim of this fund is to encourage students to become productive members, to be able to provide for their families. They build students optimism, confidence, enthusiasm, dignity and motivation to go from uneducated to become educated.

Libraries and textbooks are some of the things that have not really been heard of within Zambia schools. Thus, many children are only taught what the teacher can remember from their schooling days. The ZSF recovers textbooks that are being shipped to US landfills and redistributes it to the schools in Zambia.

Most students are eager and willing to sit on the floor, while listening to the teacher, just to learn something. There is no need for constructing schools, as there seem to be sufficient schools already in most areas, yet there is a great need for other assistance. The fund also aids with teacher’s kits, consisting of reading aids, paper, chalk and more. Additionally, they are also delivering desks, chairs, and maps to schools in Zambia, with a couple of computers to high schools.

The Zambia scholarship fund aims to help talented candidates reach their full potential. It aims to build students skills and knowledge in such a way that they can rebuild their nation and support themselves.
