At Least 110 form one going students will benefit from a full scholarship from Marsabit county government.

According to H.E Hon. Mohamud Mohammed Ali governor, Marsabit County speech during the Jamhuri Day celebration in Moyale More students are set to benefit from the County Scholarship fund which was initiated by his predecessor, 110 form one students and 1150 university and middle-level colleges will benefit from a partial scholarship, while 650 TVET students will access full scholarship to undergo Technical Vocational trainings at our TVET centres.

“From day one in office, your government also made a solemn promise to make education and training services, not only accessible and affordable but also of high quality.

Before we took over, there existed a Kshs. 45M ScholarshipFund, initiated by my predecessor, which was limited to supporting students in Universities and middle-level colleges. Recognizing the financial challenges facing many parents with secondary school-going children, your government has amended the County Scholarship Act to increase the Scholarship Fund to Kshs. 60M and extend the Fund’s coverage to secondary schools’ students from poor background.

Early this year, I made a promise of a Full Scholarship to all boys and girls in our Public Schools, who scored 350 and 300 marks and above respectively in their 2018 K.C.P.E.

Whilst I congratulate all the 2018 K.C.P.E candidates for the efforts they made in the examinations, I want to particularly commend those who posted sterling performances and are able to meet the cut points for access to County Scholarship.

I want to announce to you, that as from January 2019, at least 110 Form one Students will benefit from a Full Scholarship from the County. This was my promise to them, and our word is our bond.

Further, a total of 1150 students in Universities and middle-level colleges will benefit from a partial scholarship, while 650 TVET students will access full scholarship to undergo Technical Vocational trainings at our TVET centres.” Part of the speech read.
