Among the required guidelines these institutions are supposed to meet include; registering learners on NEMIS, applying for FDSE by filling a prescribed FDSE grant application form found on the NEMIS platform.

Also, the school heads are required to attach a certified copy of BOM minutes approving the Bank Accounts of the School, a copy of Principal’s posting letter by Teachers Service Commission (TSC), a copy of the school registration certificate, as well as an introductory letter by the Sub County Director of Education.
