Who is eligible for a scholarship?

Borrowers who secure a loan with Prodigy Finance by 30th November 2017 to attend a supported business or engineering school in the UK or US will be eligible. For full details click here.

How do I apply for a scholarship?

Simply secure your loan with Prodigy Finance to be automatically considered for a scholarship.  That’s it!

How will I be assessed?

Each candidate will be assessed based on a combination of academic aptitude (measured by GMAT or GRE scores – whichever is applicable), declared salary, advanced rate, minimum loan size, and whether a graduate school scholarship has already been awarded to a candidate at that academic institution.

How can I increase my chances of receiving a scholarship?

We appreciate your enthusiasm! However, there is nothing more that you need to do in order to be considered for a scholarship.

When is the deadline?

Secure your loan by 30th November 2017 to be considered.  This means that your loan has to be approved by Prodigy Finance and the funds disbursed to your school on or before 30th November 2017.

When are scholarship recipients notified?

Scholarship recipients will be notified on the following dates:
  • 30th March 2017 (2 recipients)

What if I don’t have a test score? Can I still be eligible?

Unfortunately not, a GMAT or GRE score is one of the required criteria to be eligible for the Prodigy Finance Scholarship.

When do the recipients receive their scholarship payout?

You will receive your scholarship in the form of a credit to your Prodigy Finance loan account within 30 days of officially accepting the scholarship.
