Reaching your dream of becoming a professional doctor is achievable, even despite the challenges posed by living in Uganda and the lack of available scholarships. The first step towards reaching this goal involves exploring all possible sources of financial aid, both within Uganda and from international organizations.
To start with, begin looking into local programs that may offer bursary or scholarship opportunities for A’Level students. These may include the RENU Bursary Program from Makerere University, which provides tuition assistance to undergraduate students with demonstrated need; the Kingdom Education Awards from Ministry of Education & Sports which offers individual awards for those pursuing A’Level education; and even private sector scholarships such as #IChooseYouLove Scholarship by MTN Uganda. You can find more information about these programs online or at your local college or university’s financial aid office.
In addition to seeking out local programs that provide assistance, you should also explore potential international sources for funding your educational pursuits such as global development agencies (the World Bank Group offers several grants and loans), external funding institutions like Global Citizens Program (GCP) which provides up to $500 annually in tuition support to student activists around the world, government aid through USAID/The U.S Palestinian Partnership Scholarship Program, etc. It’s important to remember that these types of grants are competitive – so be sure to do your research thoroughly before applying and make sure you meet all eligibility requirements listed in each grant program guidelines. Good luck!
