Rays of hope as the first governor’s scholarship cohort secure scholarship to advance their professional dreams at post secondary level.
These goodies comes after County government of Vihiga signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with African Canadian Continuing Education Society (ACCES), an organization that seeks to alleviate poverty through education by providing University and Technical School scholarships to promising and impoverished students.
A total of 23 students have been awarded full scholarship to undertake their undergraduate studies in different Universities across the country.
The 23 students are among the 97 who sat their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams last year under the Governor’s Scholarship program and have been selected to join different Universities in Kenya to pursue courses of their choice.
ACCES Kenya will offer additional scholarship slots in February 2024 so that more students can benefit.
County Government of Vihiga will also offer attachment opportunities to the students so that they can gain more skills favourable for the job market and self employment.
