HIGHER EDUCATION LOANS AND SCHOLARSHIPS BOARD
The Loans are limited and scaled down according to the level of support required. Applicants should, therefore, indicate in their application the level of the 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, however, advised to submit any documents that support their application.
METHOD OF APPLICATION
Applications by hand should be submitted to Room 23, Maxwell House Annex Building Los Angeles Boulevard, Longacres, Lusaka or the Higher Education Loans and Scholarships Board offices situated at C4 Copperbelt University, Riverside Campus, Kitwe or any NATSAVE Branch across the country.
Applications should be addressed to:
