Get ready for 2018!

Vuk'uzenzele - - Education -

ap­pli­ca­tions for fi­nan­cial aid for all Grade 12 learn­ers, in­clud­ing out-of-school young peo­ple, un­em­ployed youth, pub­lic univer­sity and tech­ni­cal and vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing (TVET) col­lege stu­dents opened on 1 Au­gust.

Youth who qual­ify to en­ter the post-school ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem but can­not af­ford to fi­nance their stud­ies can ap­ply be­fore the clos­ing date of 30 Novem­ber 2017.

The Na­tional Stu­dent Fi­nan­cial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has part­nered with the Na­tional Youth Devel­op­ment Agency (NYDA) to en­able stu­dents to ap­ply at any of the 15 NYDA branches na­tion­wide or at over 50 lo­cal youth of­fices.

The lo­cal youth of­fices are lo­cated within lo­cal gov­ern­ment fa­cil­i­ties, in all nine prov­inces, which makes it eas­ier for youth - who can­not ac­cess or use in­ter­net fa­cil­i­ties - to ap­ply for fund­ing.

The part­ner­ship has also cre­ated short-term em­ploy­ment for 115 pre­vi­ously un­em­ployed grad­u­ates, from all nine prov­inces.
