HELB’s objective is to provide financial support to deserving Kenyan students enrolled in higher learning institutions (approved by the Commission for University Education). Both Government Sponsored and Self Sponsored Students (SSP) are eligible for the HELB Undergraduate Loans. However, for SSP students, all the payments are done directly to the institution’s account as tuition while Government Sponsored students receive upkeep payment in their individual bank accounts and tuition payment (directly to the institution’s account) of KES. 4,000 per semester.
