Apart from financial grants and scholarships, candidates can also avail of monetary benefits like student loans to fund their education. However, student loans attract a certain rate of interest at which the funds are borrowed. While grants and scholarship schemes do not require repayment, student loans should be repaid by the applicants within a given period. At Berea College, the percentage of candidates who opt to avail of student loans is around 13%.
