The Loans are limited and scaled down according to the level of support required.

Applicants should, therefore, indicate in their application the level ofthe 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 Universityto another. Students wishing to apply for the loan should, therefore, be clear in their applications.

Applications should be addressed to:
