Deadline for academic aid near

2016-06-15 06:00

STUDENTS aiming to further their studies are urged to apply online for funding by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) before Monday (20/06).

Application is only for students who need to register for a second semester or trimester season to complete or continue their studies at selected institutions. The NSFAS encourages students intending to register for second semester and trimester studies at Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges and selected universities to apply.

Visit to complete an online application form and submit supporting documents before the closing date.

Students who are already funded for the 2016 academic year should not apply, as the NSFAS already has their information.

Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified via SMS before the end of July.
