"Non-debt funds" refer to any source of funding you're not required to repay. Here are some examples of non-debt funds:
- Contributions from your family and friends
We ask for these types of funds to ensure that you won't be overburdened with debt when you graduate from your masters.
A quick note: Sometimes we won't be able to offer the full amount you've requested for your loan. When this happens, we'll share the amount we can offer and will ask you to make up the difference using non-debt funds. If this is the case for you, we'll ask for an increase in non-debt funds - above what you've already included in your application.
