The call for the 8th Cohort of Student Loan Applications is slated to start in October 2021 according to Mr. Bbosa Kizito, the Director of Operations of the Higher Education Students Financing Board (HESFB).
“The call for application will be launched in October since most Higher Education Institutions are already in the process of admissions,” says Mr. Kizito.
“Proof of admission is one of the key requirements for application to the Students’ Loan Scheme and most prospective applicants are still in the process of applying for placement at different Higher Education Institutions.”
The Higher Education Students’ Financing Board (HESFB) was established in February, 2014 by an Act of Parliament HESFB Act No. 2 of 2014, with a mandate to provide Loans and Scholarships to Ugandan students to pursue Higher Education.
HESFB under the Students’ Loan Scheme provides loans and scholarships to Ugandan students who have qualified to pursue accredited courses of study or programmes in the recognized Higher Education Institutions in Uganda but are unable to support themselves financially.
