Review of loan scheme underway
Nearly 100,000 students have been sponsored through Botswana's controversial grant/loan scheme. But a review has found that fewer than one in 10 studied in areas of critical skills shortages, a high proportion of beneficiaries were unaware of what they owed, and it was not known how much had been loaned but could have been close to US$1 billion. The review suggested alternative models for a new scheme.
