Does Nsfas fund Dam College?

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a South African government financial aid scheme that provides funding to eligible students to cover the costs of tuition, accommodation, and other related expenses. NSFAS bursary focuses on funding public institutions of higher education such as public universities and TVET colleges. NSFAS aims to give an opportunity to underprivileged students who might not otherwise afford to fund their tertiary studies.

Dam College is a private institution which unfortunately means that it’s students won’t be able to receive funding from NSFAS. Students who attend Central Technical College may have other bursary options to fund their studies. Whereas private colleges like Dam College have stakeholders whose focus is on education and profit-making to keep operations running smoothly, these students may consider Fundi Educational loans from South African banks. The College also offers discounts on full payment on fees as well as flexible payment options.

Public tertiary institutions are mainly government focused and therefore the government claims the responsibility to ensure smooth processes.

Public institutions receive funding from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) and private colleges are independent of the government. However this does not mean that there are no other forms of funding for students who attend private institutions.
