Hiridjee Foundation Student Loan 2020

Applications is now closed
Seeking knowledge is an obligation on every Muslim. Indeed how Allah loves those who strive in their quest for knowledge
The Prophet (saw) [Al- Kafi]
The World Federation and Hiridjee Foundation are eager to empower Khoja girls by offering three female students the chance to study further within their chosen field. The aim is to provide Khoja female students from our community, who cannot afford the cost of tuition fees, an opportunity to pursue their higher education goals in an undergraduate course.
We understand to improve our quality of life we must focus on Higher Education. Therefore we strongly believe by focusing on Khoja female educational growth and by creating a generation of skilled Khoja female individuals who are keen on learning yet don't have the financial assistance to help them with their tuition fees. We must come together and meet their needs, support our own, which we know will have a lasting positive effect in their life as well as our communities for years to come. 
We are excited to announce The Hiridjee Foundation Student Loan which will cover tuition fees only, will be available for three female Khoja students in our Khoja community who are wishing to pursue higher education in undergraduate studies only, for the year 2020! 
The loan is available for a maximum of £12,500 GBP per student per academic year, for up to three consecutive years. The loan will only cover tuition expenses and will be paid directly to the university. 
More information below. 
Important Notice 

As many universities are closed during the global lockdown of COVID-19 Coronavirus, our Education Department has decided that the Loan schemes available to our community, apart from the Hiridjee loan, would be put on hold until further notice.  This means we will not be releasing any funds for the unforeseeable future on all other loans and will only accept applications for the Hiridjee loan scheme. Therefore the Hiridjee loan is now open and ready to receive your application. The application process is outlined below. If you find universities are being deferred to Feb 2021, please don't worry, we urge you to continue the application process and keep regular communication with us, and upon confirmation of your offer and being accepted for the Hiridjee loan we will be able to pay the university your tuition fees when it is required to do so. 

Supporting Female Students Since 2008
The Hiridjee Foundation Student Loan has been helping Khoja female students from our community to pursue their studies further since 2008. There have been a wide variety of applicants from all over the world. The loan has been awarded to Khoja female students who needed assistance with their tuition fees when studying subjects such as Law, Mathematics, Dental Surgery, Psychology, Optometry, Economics, Neuroscience and many more. The successful applicants have proceeded to study their preferred courses at many of the highest rated universities around the world, including Queen Mary University, Birmingham University, La Trobe University and the Cedar Crest College to name a few. 
We are offering this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, aimed for just for three Khoja females who have a desire to study but have some financial constraints preventing them from covering their tuition fees. The World Federation and the Hiridjee Foundation are incredibly passionate about encouraging the female members of the Khoja community to further their education in an undergraduate course and kick-start their careers and this loan is a great first step towards this.
The World Federation of KSIMC would like to take this opportunity to thank The Hiridjee Foundation for their generosity in providing loans for Khoja girls to pursue their higher education in undergraduate studies and achieve their lifelong dreams. We pray that Allah (swt) continues to shower the family with blessings and grant them infinite rewards for their continued support towards the field of Higher Education. Ameen.
