The Beacon Scholarship

The Beacon Scholarship is a change-maker programme that offers access for financially disadvantaged students from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to undergraduate programmes of study at world class schools and universities.

The scholarship is awarded to students from Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda looking to study a 3-4 year undergraduate course (excluding medicine). Tuition and maintenance fees are split three ways, with a third coming from the university partner, a third from Beacon, and a third from the scholar's parents, sponsor or guardians. The programme includes leadership training and development, an away and home country mentor network, and a goal-setting performance management system.
