On Saturday, January 21, the American government urged Kenyan students to apply for available scholarships.
The call asked the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education 2022 candidates who received their results on Friday, January 20, to apply for the study opportunities in a statement that was issued on the official Twitter account of the US Embassy in Nairobi.
“Congratulations on your results, all KCSE candidates! Apply for the 2023 Education USA Scholars Program if you are a top student who wants to pursue your further education in the United States “indicated by the US Embassy in Nairobi.
Students could also use the information provided by the US Embassy in Nairobi to apply for the scholarships.
Candidates for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education were instructed to hit the site bit(dot)ly/3kz25pF and submit their information as directed.
