The management of Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba Akoko (AAUA) has announced the provision of a students’ loan scheme to alleviate the challenges students may be encountering in the process of raising funds while studying.

According to a notice to that effect made available to EduCeleb.com on Wednesday, the management said that only three categories of students were eligible to obtain such a loan.

These include the physically challenged, Merit-Based Scholarship for Students and Students’ Support Loans.

For the physically challenged, they cannot obtain more than Fifty Thousand Naira as loan and must provide a guarantor “known to the University” to endorse their application form.

Those belonging to the second category must not be in the final year of their studies and are required to pay back their loan at the end of the session.

For the third category, the requirement is that they are proven to be indigent students. In their case, they can only get 25% of their school fees as loan.
