How can I be considered for the Prodigy Finance scholarships and what is the criteria?

When it comes to financing your international masters education, every cent counts - regardless of the currency. We encourage all borrowers to apply for scholarships and fellowships to ease their debt burden post-graduation.

Prodigy Finance awards scholarships annually in the form of debt write-offs to help borrowers achieve their goals. Several factors, based upon your Prodigy Finance loan application are taken into account, focusing on both merit and need. The scholarship amount is deducted from the scholarship recipient’s outstanding loan amount.

Initially, all you needed to do to be considered for our scholarship, was to have an active loan from Prodigy Finance. As the programme has grown and become more competitive, we’re also asking eligible students to write a motivational paragraph that we can use along with test scores to select recipients. However, the specific criteria changes from year to year.

In addition to the annual programme, Prodigy Finance launched its “Women in Tech” scholarship to encourage more women to pursue STEM degrees. The introduction of this award brought the 2018 scholarship recipients to 11, however the programme changed in 2019.
