Have you applied for a HELB Loan this year? Have you received your HELB loan? The Higher Education Loans Board has put smiles on the faces of many University and College Students.

A message that your HELB loan has been disbursed is the best news that you can receive as a student. Recently, the HELB announced that it has finalized processing loans for first-year students in universities and TVETs

In May 2023, President William Ruto unveiled a new funding model for Higher Education Funding (HEF). Under this model, learners are grouped into four categories, vulnerable, extremely needy, needy, or less needy.

The vulnerable in universities receive 100 percent scholarships with the government scholarship paying 82 percent while the loan takes 18 percent.

The extremely needy students will receive 70 percent of government scholarships while the loans will contribute to 30 percent of the tuition fee. The needy and less needy receive 93 percent of government scholarships with seven percent being household contributions in meeting the fee requirement.
