The Higher Education Student Loans Board (HESLB) has announced a list of 872 students who will receive 100 percent loans regardless of the subjects they have been selected to join.
That number is for applicants who are certified to be from poor households that are serviced by the Community Development Fund (Tasaf).
The statement was issued on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 by the board’s executive director, Abdul-Razaq Badru during the signing of a loan agreement for applicants from poor households.
Badru said the students will receive loans before starting classes to reduce inconvenience. He said the program is sustainable and they have already put in place a system to monitor them from primary schools to form six.
“We have developed a joint system with our colleagues in the Ministry of Education and Tasaf, we will be identifying students early so their application will have its priority,” said Badru. You can read also below
