Submission of Consent Form is Vital
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) emphasizes the importance of submitting a consent form to finalize the processing of your 2024 NSFAS bursary application. Failure to do so may result in delays in confirming funding by NSFAS.
No Supporting Documents Required, But Consent is Key
