THE Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund (NSFAF) has officially started with its online application process. As from December 15 last year, students across the country have been applying for financial assistance for their studies using the Fund’s online application process.
According to a press statement, NSFAF said it is pleased to announce that the current mode of application that was launched last month is a success so far, because it is free of delays, errors, and unnecessary workload as well as frustration, compared to the previous manual process.
The current online application process allows students to successfully launch their application, upload their necessary documents and to quickly receive their feedback on their application status via email or further finding out about their eligibility for funding in 48 hours’ time upon their request.
For now 15 mobile teams are already touring 119 stations and 18 fixed teams are already stationed at 18 campuses of UNAM, NUST and IUM offering assistance with the applications. The statement further disclosed that more than 800 applications were received after the release of grade 12 Ordinary Level results and it is only minor technical challenges which have been experienced in some parts due to power failure.
Students can get hold of these teams at different constituency offices and various campuses or they can access the roadshow calendar on www.nsfaf.fund/roadshow to get all regional officers’ contact details for directions and schedules. Students are urged to upload certified documents and they can also learn more about NSFAF qualification criteria on www.nsfaf.fund/ web/apply-2017.
Applications for both undergraduate and post graduate studies will end on March 31. For further information students can visit NSFAF website: www.nsfaf.fund or call the toll free number: 0800- 267323.
