Student Loans and Scholarships

We recognize the challenges of being able to pursue higher education when access to finances pose a barrier. Our teams offer guidance on external scholarships and loans available to help you meet tuition, resource, housing and other student costs.

We also offer the internal programs listed below to provide supplemental financial support to students who demonstrate academic excellence and a desire for further education. Each program acts as a lender of last resort, ensuring that funds are only provided to students in situations where all other options available to them have been exhausted. All three programs also require that the loan is repaid within five years after the student has graduated.
