National Student Financial Aid Scheme information session at Ikageng IY:

We were privileged to have Ms Cynthia Leshomo and Ntate Nkosaphantsi from N.W.U (North  West University), bursary department. Our guests shared and clarified general bursary application processes, particularly the National Student Financial Aid Scheme with our Grade 12 learners.

Our ikamvanites were keen to find out how to qualify for NSFAS, do they need to apply each year or does a single application cover all three years of tertiary, does the financial aid cover all the student expenses or tuition? When does a learner have to pay back and what happens if there is a delay in gaining employment? Should the full amount of the financial aid be paid back?   Armed with information, all the grade 12s saw NSFAS as a conduit to achieving their dreams and reaching their goals. All our matrics are completing the application process of financial support.

Twelve(12) learners have applied to North West University,  10-University of Johannesburg and Tshwane University of Technology received 7 applications, now that tertiary affordability has been addressed.

Ikamva Youth,Ikageng branch would like to thank Ms Cynthia and Ntate Nkosaphantsi from North West University for availing themselves and engaging our Grade 12’s Ikamvanites.
