UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
In the rural areas and urban slums where we work, chances of attending university are extremely low, especially if you are a girl. We provide university scholarships for the brightest and most determined girls, so they can build a career and contribute to the community and the world.
The costs of the scholarship not only cover tuition, room and board, it ensures the student is equipped to succeed with a laptop and can attend an annual conference hosted by One Girl Can in Kenya. The university conference introduces the girls to inspiring speakers, practical workshops with new skills they can apply immediately and a network to other ambitious girls and leaders who will help ensure lifelong success in all their endeavours.
When you provide a girl a scholarship, it means more than just financial support. You have an opportunity to develop an authentic relationship through regular letter exchanges and encourage them on their journey to write their own future.
Students are enrolled in either a three year – three semester program or a four year, two semester program. A full scholarship is $14,000 to cover the entirety of a girl’s university education for both options.
For a 3-year program, an annual university scholarship is $4,600 a year (or $383/month). For the 4-year program, it costs $3,500 a year (or $292/month).
