The Namibia Students Financial assistance Fun (NSFAF) 2021 Provisional Award Lists

We congratulate all successful applicants and encourage them to continue working with the Fund until finalization of their award. For those who for some reason are meeting our requirements and are not on the list – NSFAF is validating your application as per individual request. Direct such requests to the following contact details:  awardqueries@nsfaf.na or 061-434 6013/12/83.

Awarded students who will start their academic year from August/September 2020 and are not yet in possession of proof of registration should notify the Fund at this e-mail address: awardqueries@nsfaf.na (please quote your NSFAF ID, Namibian ID, First Name and Surname).

Note: Successful candidates are encouraged to observe deadlines set and as communicated.


As customary, every year Government through NSFAF invites potential students to apply for financial assistance to pursue tertiary education. The 2021 application for financial assistance opened on 18 January 2021 and closed on 16 March 2021, via NSFAF online application platform.

With the new curriculum introduced by the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture, the NSFAF online application was modified to incorporate both the legacy Grade 12 as well as for learners exiting with an ordinary level certificate at Grade 11. This has raised expectations of a situation where local institutions of higher learning registering many students meeting NSFAF funding requirements, against limited funding resources.

About 23,000 applications were received of which 17,394 met the funding requirements based on NSFAF funding criteria. Due to the higher number of eligible students vis-a-vis the limited resources, a further validation by the Ministry of Finance was executed, hence the delay in announcing 2021 awards.

I am therefore pleased to announce that the validation process is completed and the Government through NSFAF shall award 16,185 applicants that have met the criteria of income mean-testing (parental /guardian or own income), academic performance, and priority fields of study. This number is for undergraduate, vocational and post-graduate studies.

The list of awardees shall be published and shared with Institutions of Higher Learning on Monday, 5th July 2021. Further updates will be provided by NSFAF. – Issued by;

The Minister of Higher Education,

Technology and Innovation

Hon. Dr Itah Kandjii- gi, MP

    I applied for NSFAF study loan last year 2020 to study for a period of four years and i was successful. Do i have to recontract each year of study or how should i have to let them know i am still continuing for them to continue funding my study?

    Hi, i was funded last year by NSFAF TVET and was told that they only fund for one year, however when I logged in to the portal there was no option for me to apply again. My studies are on hold now.

    Hi, I would like to do a PhD at the University of Johannesburg as of 2022. Due to family commitments and currently working for a government institution I can only study part-time. Do you fund part-time PhD students for currently employed persons and what does this funding involve? For instance does it only cover tuition, or can one specify having to visit the university 3 times per year for a period of 2-3 weeks, which means that one would need flight tickets, accommodation and transport depending on where you are staying to go to and from the campus? Also studying a PhD part-time would take longer than the 3 year period for full-time studies. Can one specify e.g. a 5 year period?

    Thank you.
