Kenya: 200 Awarded Scholarships

MORE than 200 form one students are set to benefit from the Kenya Commercial Bank Foundation secondary school scholarships this year.

Bondo KCB branch acting manager Sheikh Kojwang' said the scholarship slots will spread across the country with every County getting at least four.

This he said is an increase from the previous 100 students which the Bank used to sponsor in secondary schools per year under the KCB Foundation scholarship programme, and that the beneficiaries will be given full secondary school scholarships.

Kojwang' said in Siaya County, they have sponsored four bright but extremely needy pupils who scored 380 marks and above but due to poverty would have been unable to report to the respective schools where they were called.

He was speaking yesterday at Ogango primary school in Rarieda constituency when he presented their commitment letter to sponsor Ronald Ouma Obonyo who is supposed to join Kanga Boys High school.
