NELFUND BREAKING: Student loan application portal www.nelf.gov.ng opens May 24

The Federal Government announced that the student loan application portal will open on May 24, 2024. The Nigerian Education Loan Fund shared this news on Thursday night.

President Bola Tinubu is committed to making education accessible for all Nigerian students. This is an important step in his efforts.

In June 2023, President Tinubu signed the Access to Higher Education Act. This law helps poor students get interest-free loans for their education in any Nigerian university.

The goal is to make education funding more open. The Students Loan Law created the Nigerian Education Loan Fund to manage loan applications, grants, disbursements, and recoveries.

Although the government planned to launch the scheme in September, it faced delays. The delays were due to expanding the scheme to include loans for vocational skills.
