Applications are invited from suitably qualified Zambians that meet the minimum requirements outlined here below to apply for undergraduate GRZ Student Loans for the 2019/2020 Academic Year at the University of Zambia.


Applicants should be:

(i) Zambians with Green National Registration Cards (NRC)

(ii) School leavers admitted to the University of Zambia

(iii) School leavers who completed Grade 12 in 2015, 2016 and 2017

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

e) Two (2) recent passport size photos of the candidate;

f) An application form bought from the Higher Education Loans and Scholarships Board, Lusaka or Kitwe offices. Rural students need not include this form butwill be expected to buy one at the time of registration;

Do not leave the original documents with the Social Welfare Office. Please note that the Social Welfare Office 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. Applicants are advised to submit any documents to support their application.

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 should be addressed and sent to:

The Chief Executive Officer

Higher Education Loans and Scholarships Board

P.O. Box 50464


or Hand delivered to:

Room 23 (Registry)

Maxwell House, Annex Building

Los Ange es Boulevard Longacres


or the Higher Education Loans and Scholarships Board offices situated at the Copperbelt University, Riverside Campus, Kitwe.
