Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund (NSFAF) 2022 Application

The Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund is pleased to announce the commencement of the 2022 applications.

Applications open on 27 January 2022  for Undergraduates, Postgraduates, and Vocational applicants to study at local and SADC/International recognized institutions with accredited programs. 

Please note that mature age applications will only be accepted for local public institutions.

It is mandatory that all required documents are uploaded during the application period as no additional documents will be accepted after the deadline. Visit https://namibiahub.com/nsfaf-2022-intake-requirements-fees-deadline-everything-you-need-to-know/ to understand specific requirements per funding category (undergraduate, postgraduate, and vocational).

Due to funding limitations, applications are subject to the below criteria:

  • Applicants apply towards priority fields of studies which are available and can be viewed here
  • Total combined debt to NSFAF may not exceed N$350,000 (previous debt plus loan to be awarded).
  • If you have previously benefited from the NSFAF, contact Recovery to acknowledge your debts before a new award is made.
  • Applicants are subjected to vetting with employment status (including self-employment).
  • Financial assistance is granted, subject to availability of funds.
  • Funding parental income threshold is N$500,000 for students who are 28 years of age or younger and unemployed.
  • Funding own/spousal income threshold is N$300,000 for employed students or above the age of 28 and unemployed.


  • Students will be provisionally awarded provided the applicant meets the NSFAF basic funding requirements.
  • All applicants will be required to apply online, including trainees at VTCs. No manual application will be accepted.
  • Due dates are final and will not be extended.


The Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund notifies potential applicants for 2022 academic year about important information and documents required for application.

Prospective applicants are advised to take note of the following information:

  1. NSFAF provides financial assistance to eligible students mainly in a form of loans.
  2. No student should be considered for NSFAF funding if he/she has already benefited from a programme at the same level of qualification framework.
  3. A student may only receive financial assistance from the Fund to study at any two qualification levels (i.e. Diploma, Bachelor’s Degree, Honour’s Degree, Master’s Degree, or Doctoral Degree). Funding for a third qualification level shall only be permissible if a debtor has settled previous debts. This is necessary to allow the opportunity for other students to benefit from the allocated student funding and also in case of a loan to avoid over-indebting the students.
  4. A student who is already a beneficiary but failed/passed a previous academic year but applied for funding the following year to pursue a different programme will not be funded for the new program. NSFAF shall nullify the award upon identifying such a case.
  5. An applicant, who fails to submit all required documents before the closing date of the application period, will be rejected.

  83. Jolene Gernovive Markus

    Hi I am currently a second year student at UNAM, I have a sponsor that pays my yearly tuition fees,. I just wanted to know if I can also apply for nsfaf next year for accommodation and the non tuition fees, because I have no accommodation where am studying and my parents are unemployed so they are not able to pay rent for me every month and also unable to help with my basic needs.


    dear admin, i have three questions, please help:
    1. what does the lifecycle status “pending approval” really mean. does it reflect loan potentially secured or potential loan beneficiary and is there a possibility for the application to be rejected at that stage for an Emergency medical care degree student at NUST?
    2. Are working students that applied for funding eligible for non-tuition fees in anyway, for certain reasons known to them e.g for educational purposes or for reasons known to the fund?

  85. Ndishishi

    I failed my core modules last and um reapeating my first year at IUM, I now applied for nursing science at welwitchia can nsfaf still continue funding me? Will i even get my non tuition fee this year?

    Good Evening administrator
    I am a first year student at IUM doing Diploma in Education, done with final exams for this year and I paid for myself this year. The thing is I got funded by NSFAF for the last 2 years { 2019 and 2020} in a different course which I failed last year. My question is, what do I do since I want NSFAF to continue paying for my studies next year? Like 2019 I signed a contract of 4years and they only paid the for2 years. Gladly waiting for your quick response!
