FULL LIST: Over 120 federal institutions to benefit from pilot phase of student loan



At least 1.2 million undergraduates from over 120 federal tertiary institutions are set to benefit from Nigeria’s student loan scheme.

On May 24, the Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) portal went live and became accessible to members of the public.

Before the rollout of the scheme, NELFUND said students of federal universities, polytechnics, and colleges would benefit from the first phase of the scheme.

However, NELFUND clarified that the scheme’s second phase, to be announced when due, will extend loans to state-owned institutions.


Nasir Ayitogo, NELFUND’s spokesperson, told TheCable on Monday that over 120 federal universities, polytechnics, and colleges have been deemed eligible for the pilot phase of the scheme.
