Kenya  EABL Foundation declares this year's university scholarship application drive officially open Easy African Breweries Limited
Date: 13th May 2010
EABL Foundation has announced the commencement of this year’s scholarship application drive that will see 20 new students join private and public universities across East Africa.

The scholarship program is open to bright but needy students across the region wishing to study Business, Information Technology, Engineering and Food Science. This scholarship covers books, accommodation and a monthly stipend for those students that are awarded.

“We are very conscious of the essential role education plays in the communities in which we operate. We are not only empowering people but also investing in their future and that of their communities,” said Keith Obure, EABL Foundation manager.

Mr. Obure further revealed that the Foundation was looking forward to expanding beyond the East African regional markets. “We are in liaison with relevant stakeholders with a view to getting into markets like Rwanda, Ethiopia and Southern Sudan.”

EABL Foundation Scholarship program started in 2001 as Guinness Strathmore Scholarships but it was later expanded to cover the entire region in order to allow more students to apply.

Successful applicants in the last five years have been accepted to Strathmore University, University of Nairobi, University Dar el Salaam, Makerere University among others.

Paul Ochieng’, Strathmore Research and Consultancy representative and the university’s Dean of Student, thanked the EABL Foundation for their contribution as he received a cheque worth KShs19 Million for this year’s intake from the Foundation.

He further appealed to other corporates to join in to improve the education sector in the country.

To date close to 140 students have been awarded with the EABL Foundation Scholarships, worth over Kshs 130 Million in the last nine years.

Applications for Strathmore University to study Business, Commerce and Information Technology will close on 11th June 2010 while those wishing to study Engineering or Food Science in the Public Universities have until 23rd July 2010 to apply.

Students who completed their secondary education in 2008 and have been invited to join any public universities can apply while those who sat for their exams in 2009 and want to attend a private university will be eligible for Strathmore.
