Gov’t To Give 14,426 Students Full Secondary School Scholarship.

Under the Kenya Primary Education Equity in Learning (KPEEL) Program, 14,426 pupils who completed their primary education in 2023 will get full scholarships from the government.

Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary for education, stated on Monday that students who are marginalized or at risk of becoming students will receive scholarships from the Jomo Kenyatta Foundation and the Equity Group Foundation.

Candidates with special needs and impairments as well as those who received 280 or above in the previous year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education will be taken into consideration for the program.

“Candidates with special needs and disabilities who achieved below 280 marks will be eligible for affirmative action,” he declared.

The selection criteria for refugee students in camp-based schools will be 250 for boys and 240 for girls, with 240 marks for girls.

According to Machogu, under KPEEL, the Kenyan government has given 52,000 scholarships to underprivileged and disadvantaged students since 2020.

Since 2020, the demand for government scholarship funding under the KPEEL Program and the Secondary Education Quality Improvement Project (SEQIP) has been rising yearly. To prevent further gaps in secondary education access, the growing demand must be addressed, he stated.

In order to guarantee that the government will carry out the 100% transformation program and that no child will be left behind in the educational system, he called the partners in the education industry to step in and provide scholarships to students who are in need.

Form One placement was obtained by 1,400,329 pupils who took the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).

42,927 pupils were assigned to National Schools by the ministry, 2,225 to Special Needs Education, 274,746 to Extra County, 288,201 to County, and 792,230 to Sub-county schools.

“A chance to join Form one has been granted to 717,358 boys and 682,971 girls in the National schools, Special Needs Education, Extra County schools, County schools, and Sub-County schools,” according to Machogu.
