The World Federation and Hiridjee Foundation are eager to empower female and male Khoja students by offering a chance to study further within their chosen field.

The aim is to provide a limited number of Khoja students from our community who can demonstrate Academic excellence and cannot afford the cost of university tuition fees, an opportunity to pursue their higher education goals either for an undergraduate or a postgraduate course.

The Hiridjee Foundation Student Loan will only cover university tuition fee expense and will be paid directly to the university.

Supporting Students Since 2008

The Hiridjee Foundation Student Loan has helped Khoja female students from our community to pursue their Higher Education since 2008.

Successful applicants have pursued various courses such as Law, Mathematics, Dental Surgery, Psychology, Optometry, Economics, Neuroscience and many more. The successful applicants have proceeded to study their preferred courses at well reputed universities around the world, including Queen Mary University, Birmingham University, Aston University, La Trobe University to name a few.

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