Students who are eligible to apply for NSFAS have to meet a specific criteria. A means test will be carried out in order to establish whether the applicant is eligible to receive government funding based on overall income (both the family and learner’s). This enables the NSFAS to correctly calculate the amount a student needs per year (plus a monthly stipend).
