    (c) Any system may lend money to any of its participating employees or
  their children, who are attending or  planning  to  attend  college,  to

  loans  are  guaranteed  by  the  New  York  higher  education   services
  corporation in accordance with the provisions of article fourteen of the
  education  law.  In  such cases no further security for the repayment of
  such loans shall be required of the borrowers by such system.
