Will NSFAS Pay For December 2024

NSFAS does not provide a separate December allowance for its beneficiaries. This financial aid initiative is intended to assist academically deserving and financially disadvantaged South African students. NSFAS largely supports qualifying students’ tuition, study materials, and accommodation expenses. Despite the fact that NSFAS primarily focuses on housing, textbooks, and tuition, many students are unsure if they can rely on it to pay for costs during the December holiday season. NSFAS typically disburses cash to colleges for tuition and housing. During the December holiday season, however, students may incur additional expenditures such as travel, food, and personal goods. NSFAS does not issue a distinct December allowance.
