D.Capital, a member of the Dalberg Group based in London, UK, has developed the Lending for Education in Africa Partnership (LEAP) to increasing financing for higher education access in Sub-Saharan Africa.
LEAP is a non-profit social lending fund model, designed to offer affordable financing, incentivize academic success and improve the quality and relevance of higher education degrees. LEAP’s program is directed towards youth from low and middle income backgrounds who cannot access conventional commercial loans nor benefit from bursaries or scholarships to higher education. LEAP covers both tuition and living expenses.

Aged between 18 and 25 (i.e. birth date between 22nd February, 1993 and 22nd February, 2000);
Pursuing a first university degree programme at USIU-Africa (i.e. students with an existing university degree will not be considered);
Demonstrated financial need;
Studying one of the four following courses: Pharmacy, Accounting, Applied Computer Technology, or Information Systems Technology
