9 member board for students loan scheme

The ministry of education has  inaugurated a nine member board to implement the student’s loan scheme with a call to board members to execute their duties in a transparent manner.
Five billion shillings was allocated by government to finance students with financial constraints to pursue higher education.
Education minister Jessica Alupo says she is optimistic the student’s loan scheme will increase access to higher education.
She was speaking at the inaugurating of the board led by Rev. Father Callisto Locheng at the ministry offices.
The scheme is set to be officially launched by President Museveni at Kyambogo University on Thursday this week.
