Table 3 – NSFAS Payments for the Academic Year 2020 Table 2 – Breakdown of Leases Received To Date The filing of leases is made on all campuses, so we are now able to identify students who are entitled to food allowances and those who are entitled to travel allowances. We are busy processing payments for the remainder of February and March. This equates to R1 1 1 for meal allowances for all students staying in residences and students staying in private accommodation. Students who are entitled to a refund of travel expenses receive the R725. Payments will be made as soon as possible. Students who have experienced delays in calling the number listed in previous communications are asked to contact the Hillcrest Campus Registration Centre for help or to send your questions to the email address above. If you are dependent on your parents/guardians/spouses, please indicate: NSFAS students awaiting the outcome of the complaint may continue to file their leases and allowances are granted accordingly. Table 2 provides a breakdown of the leases that have been concluded to date (this is an NSFAS requirement – see above). The negative sign indicates students who have submitted agreements but do not qualify according to the requirements of the NSFAS and therefore do not receive the accommodation allowance. Read a statement by the Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology, Dr.
Blade Nzimande, on the occasion of the official opening of the NSFAS 2020 applications to the Tshedimosetso GCIS House in Pretoria, to date, the following payments have been made to students for the 2020 academic year. Included are students who are NSFAS fellows, as well as other fellows for synthesis purposes.
