The World Federation and Hiridjee Foundation are eager to empower Khoja students by offering two male and two female students the chance to study further within their chosen field. The aim is to provide Khoja students from our community, who cannot afford the cost of tuition fees, an opportunity to pursue their higher education goals in an undergraduate / postgraduate / PhD courses.

We understand to improve our quality of life we must focus on Higher Education. Therefore we strongly believe by focusing on Khoja educational growth and by creating a generation of skilled Khoja individuals who are keen on learning yet don’t have the financial assistance to help them with their tuition fees. Therefore, we must come together and meet their needs, support our own, which we know will have a lasting positive effect in their life as well as our communities for years to come.

We are excited to announce The Hiridjee Foundation Student Loan which will cover tuition fees only, will be available for two  male and two female students in our Khoja community who are wishing to pursue higher education studies, for the year 2022!

The loan is available for a maximum of GBP 12,500 per student per academic year, for up to three consecutive years. The loan will only cover tuition expenses and will be paid directly to the university.

Supporting Female Students Since 2008

The Hiridjee Foundation Student Loan has been helping Khoja female students from our community to pursue their studies further since 2008. There have been a wide variety of applicants from all over the world. The loan has been awarded to Khoja female students who needed assistance with their tuition fees when studying subjects such as Law, Mathematics, Dental Surgery, Psychology, Optometry, Economics, Neuroscience and many more. The successful applicants have proceeded to study their preferred courses at many of the highest rated universities around the world, including Queen Mary University, Birmingham University, La Trobe University and Cedar Crest College to name a few.

We are offering this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, aimed at just two Khoja males and two Khoja females who have a desire to study but have some financial constraints preventing them from covering their tuition fees. The World Federation and the Hiridjee Foundation are incredibly passionate about encouraging the members of the Khoja community to further their education and establish their career. This loan is a great first step towards this!

The World Federation of KSIMC would like to take this opportunity to thank The Hiridjee Foundation for their generosity in providing loans for Khoja students to pursue higher education and achieve their lifelong dreams. We pray that Allah (SWT) continues to shower the family with blessings and grant them infinite rewards for their continued support towards the field of Higher Education. Ameen.
