Ehlanzeni College offers DHET NSFAS bursaries to students who meet the requirements set out by the funder.
These bursaries are not administrated or allocated by Ehlanzeni College, but the college only assists students with the application process. However, the allocation of funds is done by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme. Therefore, Ehlanzeni College is also not responsible for the payment of students’ allowance as it is part of the 32 TVET colleges e-Wallet System.
