The Loans are limited and scaled down according to the level of support required.  Applicants should indicate in their application the level of the loan required.  However, the Loans Board reserves the right to determine the actual level of the loan. Loans are awarded according to the Loans Board’s financial capacity and, therefore, admission into the University does not necessarily guarantee the applicant a GRZ student loan.

Please note that only vulnerable Zambians need apply for 100% loan and are expected to attach all necessary documents in support of their vulnerability. Those applying for 100% are expected to request for a Social Welfare Recommendation Report from the Social Welfare office in their town of residence.

The student loan is not transferable from one University to another, therefore, students wishing to apply for the loan should be clear in their applications.

Applications by hand should be submitted to Room 23, Maxwell House Annex, Los Angeles Boulevard, Long acres, Lusaka or the Higher Education Loans and Scholarships Board offices situated at the Copperbelt University, Kitwe.

Rural and female students are especially encouraged to apply.
