Sa ilalim ng pinalawig na direct loan program ng Land Bank of the Philippines, maaari nang makahiram ang mga estudyante ng hanggang P50,000 para sa gadgets na gagamitin nila sa online learning, tulad ng laptop, desktop, o tablet. 

Sa Interim Students’ Loan for Tuitions towards Upliftment of Education for the Development of the Youth (I-STUDY) Program ng LandBank, pwede nang maisama ang naturang halaga sa kabuuang P150,000 na maaaring mapahiram sa mga estudyante, o P300,000 naman sa bawat magulang na hihiram para sa pangmatrikula ng kanilang mga anak. 

“LandBank recognizes the need to support students in adapting to distance learning modalities. While we await the resumption of in-person classes, we hope that the I-STUDY Program can help students cover the financial requirements to purchase needed learning equipment and participate in online classes,” pahayag ni LandBank President at Chief Executive Officer Cecilia Borromeo.

Sa mas pinalawig na I-STUDY Program ng bangko, maaari nang mag-apply ang mga estudyante na nasa tamang edad na o simula 18 taong gulang. 

Nang inilunsad ang naturang programa noong nakaraang taon, tanging ang mga magulang o tagapag-alaga lamang ng mga estudyante ang maaaring mag-aplay para sa naturang programa. 

Ayon pa sa LandBank, mula sa 30 taong gulang ay iniakyat na sa hanggang 50 taong gulang ang edad ng mga estudyanteng maaaring makapangutang sa bangko para sa mga nabanggit na layunin.

Ang nasabing programa ay mayroong interes na limang porsyento bawat taon para sa short-term loans na nakalaan  sa mga mag-aaral sa preschool, elementarya, at sekundarya, na maaari namang bayaran sa loob ng isang taon. 

Mayroon ding pautang para sa mga estudyante sa kolehiyo, na maaari namang bayaran sa loob ng tatlong taon. May  kasama rin itong isang taong grace period para sa pagbabayad ng mismong hiniram na halaga.
