The National Student Financial Aid Scheme Act (Act 56 of 1999) created NSFAS, which included TEFSA (Tertiary Education Fund of South Africa). TEFSA was the major non-profit business in terms of Section 21 of the Companies Act from 1993 to 2000, and it terminated operations in July 2000. On TEFSA’s records, all existing loans were transferred to NSFAS.

Their objective is to transform NSFAS into a sustainable provider of financial aid to students from poor and working-class households, promoting access to and achievement in higher and further education and training in order to achieve South Africa’s national and human resource development goals.

The mission statement consists of three parts that explain why NSFAS exists and how it affects the constituency:

  • NSFAS exists to provide financial aid to eligible students at TVET colleges and public universities;
  • NSFAS identifies eligible students, provides bursaries and collects past student loan repayments to replenish the funds available for future generations of students; and,
  •  NSFAS supports access to, and success in, higher education and training for students from poor and working-class families who would otherwise not be able to afford it.

When will Nsfas make a payment?
Over the course of ten months, NSFAS allowances will be paid the first week of each month.

What is the amount of money that Nsfas gives to TVET students?
