The Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund notifies potential applicants for 2022 academic year about important information and documents required for application.

Prospective applicants are advised to take note of the following information:

  1. NSFAF provides financial assistance to eligible students mainly in a form of loans.
  2. No student should be considered for NSFAF funding if he/she has already benefited from a programme at the same level of qualification framework.
  3. A student may only receive financial assistance from the Fund to study at any two qualification levels (i.e. Diploma, Bachelor’s Degree, Honour’s Degree, Master’s Degree, or Doctoral Degree). Funding for a third qualification level shall only be permissible if a debtor has settled previous debts. This is necessary to allow the opportunity for other students to benefit from the allocated student funding and also in case of a loan to avoid over-indebting the students.
  4. A student who is already a beneficiary but failed/passed a previous academic year but applied for funding the following year to pursue a different programme will not be funded for the new program. NSFAF shall nullify the award upon identifying such a case.
  5. An applicant, who fails to submit all required documents before the closing date of the application period, will be rejected.
