EducationUSA Scholars Program 2018

The EducationUSA office at the United States Embassy – Nairobi, seeks to identify and recruit 40 academically strong Kenyan students who scored A- and above in the 2017 KCSE, to join the EducationUSA Scholars Program (ESP). The candidates must have a minimum of grade A- in both English and Mathematics.

Our mission at EducationUSA is to participate in the creation of highly skilled and globally educated leaders to build tomorrow’s Kenya. The ESP works with students through regularly scheduled training sessions to guide the Scholars in the completing application process for admission and financial aid to top-ranked U.S. universities.

The Scholars receive free membership to the EducationUSA Advising Center in Nairobi and Nakuru. In return, EducationUSA expects a sincere commitment from the students to give their energy and time to the program and to give back to their communities.

The program is not limited geographically; however, students must be able to reach our offices in Nakuru or Nairobi as required for full participation. Students will work with the EducationUSA Adviser and interns in 2018/2019 to try and secure admission and financial aid from U.S. universities. Admitted students will begin their studies in the U.S. in August 2019.

Qualifications: A VERY strong record in academics, co-curricular and leadership activities, and community service plus demonstrated financial need.
