The Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) is established to disburse loans to students to cater to the need for student education. The current administration of President Bolla Ahmed Tinibu has put up this plan to cushion the effect of high fees and other needs of the students.

This article is specifically designed to look at the basic requirements and criteria for accessing the loan. Most students are confused as to the requirements and the exact date for the commencement of the loan program.
