Apply: Undergraduate GRZ Student Loans at Copperbelt University ( Zambians )

Application for undergraduate GRZ Student Loans at Copperbelt University (CBU) for the 2023–2024 academic year is now open to qualified Zambians who match the minimum standards listed below.

The Loans are capped and may be reduced based on the level of assistance requested. Therefore, applicants should specify in their application the type of loan they need. The Higher Education Loans and Scholarships Board (HELSB), however, has the right to choose the precise loan amount.


Since loans are given out in accordance with HELSB’s financial ability, acceptance into the university does not ensure that the applicant would receive a GRZ student loan. However, applicants are encouraged to send any supporting documentation.
