Government Scholarships

Government Scholarships

The government will not provide funding for  students  who meet the requirements to enroll in universities, colleges, or other higher  education institutions.

Students will apply for government loans and  subsidies under the new model approved by President William Ruto.

The government scholarship will be awarded based on  the program’s actual cost and the financial  requirements of the student.

According to the new model, unlike in the past, people who meet the requirements to enroll in higher education will not receive government funding.

Degree programs are only available to students who passed the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) test with a grade of C+(plus) or higher. Candidates will now need to apply for government aid and loans in order to pay for their studies under the new paradigm.

According to the government, 9,662 students attending private institutions will only receive loans rather than scholarships, leaving 130,485 students enrolled in public universities to receive both.

870 561 applicants met the requirements for admission to colleges and universities based on the results of the 2022 KCSE exams, but only 285,698 people applied for the openings through the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) systems.

Ezekiel Machogu, the secretary to the cabinet for education, reported that 140 107  students had been admitted to degree programs and 144 500 to TVET institutes. 560 applicants in all were accepted into secondary teacher training institutions. Given the ambiguities in the new model approved by the government, parents have  been caught in a fog of confusion and worry as admission to tertiary education  institutions approaches in a few days. The government scholarship will be determined by the program’s actual cost and  the student’s financial needs, according to the organization in charge of  administering the university money.
