Bursary Support


Fasset offers a suite of bursary schemes to eligible learners.  The bursary offering will enable Fasset to partner with public providers from Universities and Universities of Technology registered with DHET to ensure that learners are fully bursared in order to obtain formal qualifications that will ultimately enhance their chances of securing learnerships, internships or full time employment in the broader economy including in the Fasset sector.

Fasset is currently in the process of establishing the parameters to issue bursaries to the “Missing Middle” as from January 2017 and is working with Universities and Universities of Technology registered with DHET to finalise.

Financial support for learners in the sector with student loans

NSFAS Loan Repayment Grant

This enables Fasset to identify young learners who have already completed a qualification aligned to scarce skills within the sector and are being hampered in achieving their full potential due to the financial burden that they are carrying.

The outcome of this intervention is that learners will be relieved of their financial burden, will be able to complete their learnerships without having to change jobs just for higher salaries to pay off their loans AND re-inject additional funding into the NSFAS pool which will enable additional learners to have access to full time study opportunities. In other words this intervention will have a double benefit to the post schooling system in that the Fasset sector will be able to access learners who are not as financially burdened as they were previously whilst also offering opportunities to new learners who are seeking to enter the higher education and training area who are financially constrained.


  • African Black and Coloured learners in the Western and Northern Cape learners only, who are South African citizens, by birth or became a South African citizen before 27 April 1994, with a valid South African identity document may apply or be put forward for the grant.
  • Learners must be enrolled for a three-year qualification that is aligned to a scarce skill within the Fasset sector.
  • Learners who are currently in their second or third year of study will be eligible to apply.


The course registered for must relate to a scarce skill in the Fasset sector.
