Prodigy Finance broadens access to education for international students through study loans that don’t require a co-signer. We support high-potential students by providing the funds they need to attend their top-choice programs.
Many students who can’t pursue their studies due to a lack of funding such as savings or scholarships can get a loan from Prodigy Finance. Our loans are a practical option for students to independently pay for their education without requiring co-signers, collateral, or a credit history.
How our loans work
Prodigy Finance assesses students on their future earning potential. Eligible students are offered variable interest rate loans starting at 6.7% APR.* After graduation, students benefit from a 6-month grace period, and there are no penalties for early repayment.
How we fit in your toolbox
Educating your students starts with funding transparency. For this reason, many schools we support choose to share awareness of Prodigy Finance with their students during recruitment events, in admitted student communications, or on their website’s lender list.
Prodigy Finance is a resource you can share with your students that gives them the option to self-fund their program of choice rather than letting competing scholarships decide which program they attend.
Spotlight your school
Our School Spotlight pages offer a chance to market your graduate programs to the growing number of international students visiting our website in search of education opportunities with funding options at no cost.
“Being able to reference being a Prodigy partner on our website, in email communications and presentations offers an initial door opening to international candidates who may have previously never dreamed of being able to afford an MBA. It allows me to temporarily put their minds at rest for us to §continue the conversation about the life-changing possibilities.”
Kim Killingsworth, Director, International Recruiting and Relations, Owen Graduate School of Management, Vanderbilt University

What others are saying
“Since working with Prodigy Finance, we have been able to increase our yield from geographies in which applicants might previously have struggled to finance their MBA or masters studies. Prior to Prodigy, we often had great candidates who were willing to make the investment in their future and who could have been very successful, but they simply did not have the ability to fund their tuition and living expenses at the time…”
Nick Barniville, Associate Dean, Degree Programs and Director, EdTech Lab, ESMT Berlin
