I’m Not Just a Student Number – submit your story and stand a chance to win R1 000!

This month, we celebrate South African Youth. 16 June marks national Youth Day, a day we commemorate those who made a difference to the future of South African youth and lead to the fact that each and every South African has a constitutional right to adequate and equal education.

Eduloan is celebrating the individuality of South African students and scholars, recognising the potential in every person. We consider every student’s needs when we put together their student loan package, taking your dreams and ambitions into consideration and working out a payment schedule that will suit you and your pocket!

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.

Do you want the chance to prove that you’re more than just your student number or a name on a class register? Tell us why you represent the youth of South Africa.

Submit your contribution to before 30 June 2013 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!
