The Higher Education Students Financing Board has cautioned members of the public against conmen.
This comes after the board extended the time for receiving applications of students seeking loans to be able to continue with their studies.
The boards chairman Fr. Callisto Locheng said the application forms are to be given out free of charge and so members should be aware of unscrupulous individuals who may want to take advantage and solicit money from them.
He says the selection process is done automatically and so no one should be asked to pay to be considered.
23.3 billion shillings has been allocated for the scheme this financial year and a total of 3799 students have benefited from it since its inception in 2014.
