d) A photocopy of the candidate’s NRC and Parent’s/Guardian’s NRC;

d. A photocopy of the candidate’s NRC and Parent’s/Guardian’s NRC;

Do not leave the original documents with the Social Welfare Office. Please note that the Social Welfare once does not make applications for sponsorship on behalf of students.
The Loans are limited and scaled down according to the level of support required. Applicants should, therefore, indicate in their application the level of the loan required. However, the Higher Education Loans and Scholarships Board reserves the right to determine the actual level of the loan. Loans are awarded according to the Board’s financial capacity and, therefore, admission into the University does not necessarily guarantee the applicant a GRZ student loan.
The student loan is not transferable from one University to another. Students wishing to apply for the loan should, therefore, be clear in their applications.
Applications by hand should be submitted to Room 23, Maxwell House Annex Building, Los Angeles Boulevard, Longacres, Lusaka or the Higher Education Loans and Scholarships Board offices situated at the Copperbelt University, Riverside Campus, Kitwe.
Rural and female students and those living with disability are especially encouraged to apply.
Closing date: Friday 12th October 2018
