Terms of Reference
  • To advise the Government on, and to keep under review, the operation of the Tertiary Student Finance Scheme - Publicly-funded Programmes and the Non-means Tested Loan Scheme to ensure that their objectives and the needs of the community are met.
  • The Objectives of the Schemes are that:
    1. TSFS – Publicly-funded Programmes
      1. no student who is offered a place in any of the tertiary institutions should be deterred from accepting that place because of a lack of means;
      2. financial assistance to students should be based on need; and
      3. such assistance should take the form of a combination of grants and loans.
    2. Non-means Tested Loan Scheme
      1. students may obtain financial assistance, on a non-means tested basis, to meet the cost of their tertiary tuition fees; and
      2. such assistance should take the form of loans on a no-gain-no-loss and cost recovery basis.
