The JKF (Jomo Kenyatta Foundation) and the Ministry of Education (MoE) have announced scholarship opportunities for pupils who scored above 280 marks in the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination.
In a notice published in MyGov yesterday, children from all the 47 counties who sat their exams in 2023 will benefit from the scholarship programme.
Only applicants from public primary schools and refugee camps who sat the 2023 KCPE exam will be taken into consideration.
The ministry further clarified that students from urban informal settlements, orphans and those whose parents are disabled and unable to support their families financially are all eligible.
In addition, those whose families are affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses will be considered.
Other categories listed are those from poverty-stricken families, those neglected, and learners with special needs and disabilities.
Interested applicants are advised to collect scholarship application forms from the nearest sub-county education office.
Refugee learners’ forms can be collected from Equity Bank branches in Kakuma and Dadaab and the sub-county education offices.
Application forms can be downloaded from the Ministry of Education website: www.education.go.ke
For non-refugee learners, they can also access them online at https://scholarship.jkf.co.ke
Applications for refugee learners can too be done online at http://scholarship.jkf.co.ke
The deadline for application is December 28, 2023.
