KNUT Demands that Cancer Be Declared A National Disaster.
Concerns regarding the future of higher education are frequently voiced by those working in the university and TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) sectors, especially in light of recent recommendations for alternative funding strategies.
President William Ruto announced in May 2023 precise criteria that would be used to determine how much money the government will allocate for higher education.
On July 31, 2023, Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary in charge of education, unveiled the Higher Education Funding (HEF) website. Students can use this gateway to apply for financial aid after getting a letter of admission.
However, concerns about potential flaws in the system have been raised due to questions that have been raised concerning the application procedure and the method used to choose recipients of government scholarships.
Applicants must be Kenyan citizens and have completed the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) in 2022 in order to be considered for a scholarship from the Kenya University Fund.
Enrolling in different undergraduate, diploma, craft certificate, or craft courses provided by authorized public universities or teacher education institutions (TETs) in Kenya may also be advised by the Kenya Universities Central Referral Service (KUCCPS). Starting in 2022, this scholarship will be offered for KCSE exams.
