According to News24, The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) board has decided to allow a once-off application window period for students who could not apply for funding for the 2021 academic year.

NSFAS spokesperson Kagisho Mamabolo says the terms and conditions will apply and some students have never submitted supporting documents.

“The NSFAS terms and conditions will apply. We have students that never submitted supporting documents.” – he said
