African Leadership University(ALU) Financial Aid
We seek to make ALU’s world-class educational experience accessible to all students who receive admission and offer innovative financial assistance options to ensure that finances are not a barrier for high potential students to attend ALU.
When you apply for financial assistance you will provide us with information that will help us to determine how much you are able to contribute to your education and how much support you will need from us. Each family will be assessed based on their individual, demonstrated need.
The ALU admissions process is need-blind which means that your financial situation does not affect our admissions decisions.
Income Share Agreement
The majority of financial assistance awarded will be in the form of the Income Share Agreement (ISA), an innovative tuition financing model that will make tertiary education accessible to thousands of students across Africa. The ISA awards funds to allow a student to attend ALU and in exchange the student pays back a percentage of their income earned for set period of time after graduation.
