I’m Not Just a Student Number – we want your submissions!








Do you want the chance to prove that you’re more than just your student number or a name on a class register?

This year, Eduloan is celebrating the individuality of students and scholars, recognising the potential in each one of you. As the only education finance specialist in the country, we realise that students don’t all fit in one box and that all of you have your own uniqueness that you can use not only for the betterment of yourself, but for the benefit of those around you.
That’s why we’re asking YOU to give a voice to students all over Southern Africa.We want you to participate in our “Not Just a Student Number” initiative and submit a thought-provoking article for our blog based on the theme for the month. 

Submit your contribution to competitions@eduloan.co.za before the 30th April and we could select yours as the winning article to be featured on our blog for next month. We also have a R1 000 cash prize to give-away to the winning entry each month, so get your creativity going!
You can write about anything, but it must not be fiction (fic·tion [f k sh n] noun. Writing that is produced by the imagination and is not necessarily based on fact)and it should touch on your viewpoint and life as a student or scholar. It should also have something to do with the monthly theme that we are giving you below. Make sure you don’t write anything negative about a real person without their knowledge.
