Walter Sisulu University Bursaries Details 2017-18
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has started the roll-out of the Student Centered Model by opening online applications as from Monday, 01 August 2016 until 30 November 2016.
The Student Centered Model is meant to open a direct relationship between NSFAS and its students, from registration phase to completion of their studies. The system will help in alleviating payment delays and new applications for funding every year.
The application requirements are as follows:
• Students who have never received NSFAS funding must apply online
• All students who were previously funded by NSFAS but are not funded in 2016 must apply online
• All students who have signed their Loan Agreement Forms (LAF) or Schedule of Particulars (SOP) for 2016 and are currently receiving NSFAS funding DO NOT HAVE TO REAPPLY. Funding will be granted provided you meet the academic requirements. Academic results from exams, including supplementary exams, will be submitted to NSFAS by WSU. All funded NSFAS students are requested to update their information online. Please log onto www.nsfas.org.za and create the MyNSFAS account to verify your details https://my.nsfas.org.za/sites/selfservice
All paper applications forms can be sent to NSFAS Head Office in Cape Town either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or Fax 086 644 2822 or by post to: The 2017 Online Applications, NSFAS Loans & Bursaries Department, Private Bag X4, Plumstead, 7801.
The Student Centered Model will ensure that students receive their allowances sooner than in previous years. The allowances will be paid directly to the students.
