Student Loan Application To Open For State-owned Institutions In June

The student loan scheme will be open to state-owned tertiary institutions in three weeks.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday, May 30, Akintunde Sawyerr, Managing Director of Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND), said the fund aims to start receiving applications on June 25.

However, Mr Sawyerr added that the date remains tentative due to factors like data upload by institutions.

In his words:

“We will commence accepting applications from students attending state-owned tertiary institutions in three weeks time. We request all state institutions to submit their students data immediately in order to facilitate a smooth and seamless application process.”
