Probe of problems in awarding students loans and bursaries

Problems in awarding students loans and bursaries

FINANCIAL support for tertiary students through the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) would continue to fall short of demand, and the fund was set to undergo a forensic audit to establish “deficiencies” in disbursements, the Department of Higher Education and Training said on Monday.

The government scheme would provide loans and bursaries worth R9.5bn this year, including R526.9m to develop scarce skills. There would be 425,095 spaces available for further study across the tertiary education spectrum this year, Higher Education and Training Minister Blade Nzimande said.

Both demand for financial aid and for places at a university will continue to outstrip demand.

Department of Higher Education and Training directorgeneral Gwebinkundla Qonde said this year would see the “rolling out of a comprehensive forensic investigation” as the department believed that “the money that is readily available — if properly and legitimately used — can cover quite a lot”.

“There are a number (of problems), such as students that are not supposed to be legitimate beneficiaries getting into the scheme.” The problems included students providing false information and “colluding officials”, Mr Qonde said.

Higher Education SA CEO Jeffrey Mabelebele said on Monday the body, which represents the vice-chancellors of SA’s public universities, supported the forensic audit, which was “long overdue”. Universities had also agreed to improve their own forensic capabilities, he said.

The issue of financial aid sparked a number of incidents of campus violence last year, when half the applicants to the scheme were turned down. Most students will hear this month if their applications have been successful.

Last year, NSFAS received R8.3bn — excluding R1bn to address shortfalls reported by tertiary institutions for that year and 2013. The estimated need for NSFAS funding was R51bn over the next three years, the scheme’s CEO, Msulwa Daca, said on Monday.

This year, NSFAS would be funding 205,000 first-time and continuing eligible students at universities and 200,000 students at technical and vocational education and training colleges, Mr Nzimande said. Most would be from poor backgrounds.

Many universities have reported that applications have exceeded spaces for some programmes by 10:1.

SAPOA raises R40m for Bursary Fund through Services SETA contribution

SAPOA announced at the Annual SAPOA International Convention and Property Exhibition that it has raised R40-million for its Bursary Fund.


SAPOA Bursary Fund

“Over the next four years, R40-million has been approved for 100 bursary students,” said Head of STANLIB Direct Property Investments and Outgoing SAPOA President, Amelia Beattie. “We have surpassed our original 50 student goal,” adds Beattie.

The money was raised through a contribution by the Services SETA (SSETA) after negotiations with SAPOA took place over the last seven weeks.
Pamela Snyman, a Board member of the SSETA who represented the Chair of the SSETA at the Convention, said: “My wish and my goal is to see, through SAPOA, these students partaking in postgraduate degrees after the next four years”.

Passionate about real estate and education, Snyman highlighted that initiatives such as the SAPOA Bursary Fund is what the country needs. “We need skills today and we all need to stand up together and do something – we need to fly high and we need aspiration,” added Snyman.

Snyman said that through education, training and skills development, we can assist the youth in becoming independent as well as budding entrepreneurs. “They also need to be focused and relentless in their goals and dreams. The youth need to stay current and up to date as well as face challenges head on,” she said.

In the effort of addressing transformation in the property industry coupled with the aim of alleviating the skills shortage in the country, SAPOA established a bursary fund scheme five years ago which has garnered success since its inception.

“About five years ago, the SAPOA Bursary Fund was initiated with the sole objective to create a fund in the commercial property industry for scholarships and bursaries for previously-disadvantaged individuals,” says SAPOA Chief Executive Officer, Neil Gopal.

“These students are taken through a four year BSc degree, with the fund fully managed at the SAPOA head office, hence removing the intensive administrative matters out of our member’s hands. The students are then placed with member companies by SAPOA on completion of their degree,” explains Gopal.

“The future of our nation depends on how we invest in its youth,” concluded Gopal.
