The United States government has invited Kenyan students to apply for scholarship opportunities.
The call was made on the official Twitter account of the US Embassy in Nairobi on January 21 and was directed toward Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates who received their results on January 20.
In the statement, the US Embassy in Nairobi congratulated all KCSE candidates on their results and encouraged top students to apply for the 2023 Education USA Scholars Program, which aims to identify, recruit, and assist 40 academically strong students to gain admission to universities in the United States.
1. The minimum score to join the program is an overall grade of A- in the KCSE.
2. Students who sat their KCSE prior to November/ December 2022 are NOT eligible.
3. The program does NOT work with graduate students who have already completed their undergraduate education at local universities. (If you are hoping to study in the US as a graduate student, please reach out to the EducationUSA office for further advice)
Kindly note that this is NOT the application for ESP, but merely a determinant of academic eligibility for the program. After reviewing the result slips, eligible students will receive the application form and further application details via email. Students with scores less than 74 points in KCSE need not apply, as such applications will not be considered.
You will be required to have an active email address to fill this form; you can only begin working on the form after your email address is verified. By providing your email address to access the form, you are consenting to provide the EducationUSA office with your personal information and unaltered copies of the required documents.
