Prodigy Finance launches its 74th
Engineering school in the USA with the addition of North Carolina State

Until recently, international students pursuing postgraduate degrees in the United States faced inadequate funding options. Without easy access to local American loans, students usually pieced together enough money through scholarships, personal loans, family money, and savings. Most grads accept positions in top companies such as Google, Cisco, or Amazon and continue to develop professionally and financially.

Providing loans to STEM students pursuing their masters in the US, was the logical step to expand our international lending programme which began with the support of international students pursuing graduate business degrees.

In just two years, Prodigy Finance has grown to support over 80 engineering schools around the world - most of them in the United States. We continue to add and support the top engineering programmes, and our most recent addition assists international students pursuing STEM postgraduate degrees at North Carolina State University. Supported master’s programmes include (but are hardly limited to) computer science, electrical engineering, information systems, mechanical engineering, and business analytics.

And, Prodigy Finance will continue to grow. As a community-based lender, we add new schools as new sources of funding emerge. Using capital from the most recent fundraising campaign, our target is the addition of more than 200 engineering schools in the next 12 months.

Currently, we support top engineering schools such as Carnegie Mellon, Columbia University, Duke University, and the University of Southern California.
