Criteria for fund application

Due to funding limitations, postgraduate applications thought the NSFAF home page is subject to the criteria below:

  • Applicants should have not received more than two funding opportunities from NSFAF.
  • Total combined debt may not exceed N$350,000 (previous debt plus loan to be awarded).
  • If you have previously benefited, you will be requested to attach an acknowledgement of debts and/or proof of repayment arrangement, before an award can be issued.

    Only a set of the pre-determined fee will be committed, subject to the availability of funds.

Students will be provisionally awarded provided the applicant meets the fund’s basic funding requirements.
All applicants will be required to apply online.

Due dates are final and will not be extended.

NSFAF Application and loan contract compulsory

The fund will NOT make fee payments to any students without an application and loan contract. Therefore, the fund wants to remind those at Vocational Training and Education institutions to apply.
