Yes, it is possible to get a scholarship to study at Kenyan accredited public and private universities next year. Scholarships are available for those who demonstrate financial need, high academic achievement, and/or exceptional circumstances.

The most common route for receiving a full or partial scholarship in Kenya is through the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB). HELB offers funding for university students from both public and private institutions across the country. Before applying for any type of loan or grant from HELB, you must first create an account on their website which will be used as your permanent application portal. The website outlines all the steps you need to take in order to apply successfully – including what documents you’ll need to submit and how much money you may qualify for based on your academic achievements and family income situation.

Aside from HELB scholarships there are many external organizations that offer scholarships specifically targeted towards Kenyan students seeking higher education at either public or private universities. These include but are not limited to: Chevening Scholarships (UK), African Union Scholarships Program (AU), USAID Kenya Learning Grants, Hubert Humphrey Fellowships Program (USA), The MasterCard Foundation Scholarship Fund; JustLeadership Africa Bursary/Scholarship Fund; Islamic Development Bank Scholarship program; PEPFAR DREAMS Fellowship Program (USA); Mandela Washington Fellowship Program by YALI (Young African Leaders Initiative); etc. All of these organizations have various submission deadlines and requirements so make sure you read up on them carefully before applying!

In addition to these nationally-funded programs there are also many philanthropic agencies and charitable foundations dedicated solely towards helping Kenyans receive higher education grants either within the country itself or abroad – some of which require applicants send in monthly reports with updates about their progress alongside expenses incurred while studying those courses they applied for grant money with prior approval of course . If this interests you then do some research into such organizations like Rotary International District 9200 Sponsorship Programme – Twende Sasa Scholarship program ; Linde Family Foundation – Mae Tuvalu Scholarship ; Fazlur Khan Memorial Fund For Need Based Financial Assistance To Kenyan Students; Machakos County Trust Doctoral Degrees Awards etc.. Good luck!
