About the Program
The funding portfolio of the Aga Khan Education Board of Canada (AKEBC) provides students with support and guidance on how to fund their education through external scholarship and loan programs and internal scholarship and loan programs offered by AKEBC.

The funding portfolio directly oversees the following three funding programs offered by AKEBC for higher education. Each program acts as a lender of last resort, ensuring that funds are only provided to students in situations after students have exhausted all other options available to them. This ensures that the funds are used for all students who need it the most. All three programs also require that the loan is repaid within 5 years after the student has graduated. 

The collections representative's main duties will be in assisting us with ensuring loan repayment and providing student updates.
