According to the Students Loan Trust Fund (SLTF), it has made its application portal available to students who require financial aid to complete their study in 2023.
They claim that students who successfully apply and fulfill all requirements for loan eligibility will be granted access to the facility.
George Ferguson Laing, the Students Loan Trust Fund’s head of public relations, claimed that the fund had paid all of the students who had requested financial aid in 2022.
“We recently opened applications. We have opened the portal for students to apply. So as it stands now we are yet to see the numbers that would be applying. The portal will be open for a couple of months. We will be vetting these applications and once they go through the process, we will start disbursement,” Mr. Laing explained.
There have been worries throughout the years that the Student Loan Trust Fund has not provided loans to students.
Mr. Laing claims that steps have been taken to resolve the issue.
“We have been putting in place strategies over the years to help make disbursement as smooth as possible. We rely partly on government for funding to disburse. But also one of our key sources of funding is recovery of loans from people that have benefited from the loan,” the Head of Public Relations at the Students Loan Trust Fund assured.
