Open NSFAS for rejected and pending students

Majority of people have been funded. But some are not.

Open NSFAS for rejected and pending students

Open NSFAS for underprivileged rejected students and communicate with the students who have applied.

Why is this important?

Furthermore, when one makes an application for NSFAS one is required to issue payment records of all the people in one's household, and the dependents of those people. This is to help NSFAS detect your finances for the month yet they don't consider the monthly cost of a single person, ultimately rejecting the funding application.

The Minister of Basic Education announced that the 2016 matric class was the largest in many years. Some students applying for NSFAS have come forward saying that they have not received responses at all. What does this mean? And will students who are rejected receive communication informing them of such?

Education is important, & fees are high. We all deserver quality education #EducationForAll
