Wanabodi,

Nimesikia tetesi nyingi mitàani kuwa watakaopata division one na two ndio watakaopata mkopo mwaka wa masomo 2016/17. Naamini hii yaweza kuwa tafsiri sahihi/isiyo sahihi ya sehemu hii kwenye guideline yao hii waliyoitoa hivi karibuni. Naomba tuijadili kwa pamoja, ili wote waondokane na huo mkanganyiko

Lakini mkuu hicho ni kipengele cha grants, na hiki ni tofauti na kile mwanzoni walikoandika zile eligibility criteria. Na hii ni kwenye science kama nimeelewa vizuri.
Wenye kuzijua hizi grants zinakuwaje ndio wanaoweza kutusaidia vizuri

Grants ni tofauti na loan, grants haulipi na wala sio deni kwa anaesomeshwa ni msaada wanaopewa watu bure sasa ndo hao wenye 1 na 2 ndo watapata grants na baadae wakimaliza kama fadhila kwa nchi watafanya kazi nchini kwa miaka kama mitatu ndipo waende watakapotaka wao...ila wenye 3 na wengineo mnaweza pata loan ila sio grants ambapo baadae hiyo loan mtalipa...nafasi ya hizi grants wanapewaga watu wachache sio kwamba wenye 1 na 2 wote watapata hizo grants.Hope nimekuweka kwenye mwanga kidogo dear..

3.0 MEANS TEST, LOAN ITEMS AND AMOUNT/RATE TO BE FINANCED
According to the Act, the Board may provide loans to cover either all items or any of the items stipulated under section 16 (3).
3.1 Means Test System
The Board has since 2011/2012 academic year reviewed the means test system to make it Simple, Transparent and Fair.
The Means Test System considers School Fees paid in O – level and A – Level Secondary Schools or Ordinary Diploma as an indication of the applicants’ ability to contribute to the costs of higher education.
Thus, the Applicant’s neediness shall be measured as a difference between the higher education costs (Meals and Accommodation charges, Books and Stationery expenses, Special Faculty Requirement expenses, Field Practical expenses, Research expenses and Tuition Fees) of a particular institution of study and the applicant’s ability to pay forhis/her own education; multiplied by a factor to acknowledge the high return of Higher Education to the applicant. The factor ranges from 1.1 to 1.5 depending on the magnitude of the Tuition Fees paid at O-Level or ALevel Secondary/Ordinary diploma Education. The higher the magnitude, the higher the factor.
In addition, the system shall make adjustments to cover for Loan applicants with special socio-economic disadvantages such as Orphanage, Disability (of Parents/applicants) and those with Single parents.
Under the Means Test System, the whole loan shall be aggregated to one lump sum amount. Out of that, the Tuition Fee and Special Faculty Requirement components shall be paid directly to the institution of study, whereas the remaining amount shall be paid to the student quarterly.
10
The Means Test shall be applicable to first time loan applicants on Tuition fees and Special Faculty Requirements loan items only. The other four loan items (Meals and Accommodation, Books and Stationery, Field Practical Training and Research) may be allocated one hundred (100) per cent.

In view of limited loanable funds budget, candidates who are able to meet costs of higher education, are strongly advised not to apply for loans from the Board.
3.3 Applicable Tuition Fee Rates
Tuition Fees for first time loan applicants approved for loans in the 2016/2017 academic year as well as all continuing loan beneficiaries in Local HEIs shall be pegged to the equivalent tuition fees paid in Public Higher Education Institutions which were used in 2015/2016 academic year.
3.4 Continuing students who are loan beneficiaries
All other continuing students’ loan beneficiaries shall continue to receive their loans as per their previous Means Test Grades upon submission of examination results/progress reports to signify that they have passed and are proceeding to the next year of study. However, all continuing students who are loan beneficiaries need not to reapply for loans except those who are no longer in need should notify the Board through the Online Loan Application Management System (OLAMS).
3.5 Tuition Fees
The Board may provide tuition fee loans of between 0% and 100% based on the comparable rates charged by public institutions and also depending on the types of the programmes offered by the comparable

The tuition fee funds shall be paid directly to the Higher Learning Institutions but the student borrower shall have to acknowledge receipt of the funds by signing on a copy of the payment list issued by the Board. It will be the responsibility of the Higher Education Institutions to properly identify and obtain the signatures of the students on the Tuition Payment sheets and submit the original signed sheets to the Board within sixty (60) days after receipt of the funds.
3.6 Field Practical/Teaching Practical Training expenses
The Board may provide Field Practical Training/Teaching Practical (FPT) loans at the rate of Tzs 10,000 per day up to a maximum of 56 days in a year. FPT loans shall not be subjected to Means Test.
The Board may provide such loans for those programmes that require Field Practical Training (FPT) as recommended by the respective Higher Education Institutions and approved by the Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU) and the National Council for Technical Education (NACTE).
3.7 Special Faculty Requirements
Subject to Means Test results, the Board may provide Special Faculty Requirement (SFR) loans of between 0% and 100% but only for study programmes that require special faculty requirement items and only for specified items as approved by TCU/NACTE based on the rates comparable to public institutions.
Funds for special faculty requirements shall be paid directly to the Higher
Learning Institutions but respective student borrowers shall have to acknowledge receipt of the funds by signing on a copy of the payment list issued by the Board.
