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 guarantcc thc applicant a GRZ student loan. Applicants arc, howcvcr, advised to submit any documents that support their vulnerability.

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.
