Cape Town – The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has welcomed the green light by the Minister
of Higher Education, Science, and Innovation, Dr. Blade Nzimande to open the online applications for 2022.

The online applications for 2022 are for applicants who would need government bursaries to further their studies
at any of the 25 public universities or 50 TVET Colleges including students who previously studied without NSFAS.

On Tuesday, October 26, Minister Nzimande visited the NSFAS Head Quarters in Cape Town to assess the state
of readiness for the 2022 online applications system process for first-time students and the returning students who
previously studied without NSFAS.

Appreciating the system improvements and significant considerations made to simplify the application system
process for eligible students, the Minister said: “I am quite confident from the demonstration I have seen, that we
are ready to open the 2022 online application for eligible students.”

Speaking on the approval of the opening of the online applications for 2022 by Dr. Blade Nzimande, Mr. Ernest
Khosa, NSFAS Board Chairperson said that the approval by the Minister to allow NSFAS to open the 2022 online
application is an indication that the public entity is taking steps in the right direction

“We appreciate the confidence and the support the new NSFAS Board and management is receiving from the
Minister. Our team has demonstrated to the Minister all the stages each application will go through when submitted
by an applicant. We were able to assure the Minister that we are much better prepared to deal with any challenges
that may come,” said Mr Ernest Khosa.

Minister Nzimande is expected to brief the nation on the opening date of the 2022 online application soon. More
details on the system improvements and application processes will be made available on the date of the briefing.
