Student funding applications for 2023 through the National Student Financial Aid Scheme Website are currently open and a considerable number of people have applied.
However, some may think they have submitted their applications, only to have missed a few steps in the process.
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has already received thousands of applications from students seeking to have their tertiary study funds covered with only a few months left before the application deadline.
However, it appears that not all applicants are thoroughly following the entire application process step by step. This could have the unfortunate result of their applications not being processed.
According to their recent social media post, the bursary scheme has found that some of them only create a myNSFAS account and are under the impression that they have completed the application process after doing so. NSFAS has advised against this.
Hey applicants, please note that creating a myNSFAS account does not mean you have applied for funding. After creating an account, you need to log in to your myNSFAS account using your ID number and password, click on the apply now button, and follow the steps to apply
As stated above, applicants must first create a myNSFAS account. Those who already have an existing myNSFAS account can simply log in and submit their application.
How To Apply For NSFAS
