Equity Group/MasterCard Foundation Secondary Schools Scholarships 2015

On Tuesday, December 30th, 2014
This year, Equity Group Foundation and The MasterCard Foundation with support from KfW, will offer 2,000 comprehensive secondary school. scholarships across the country through the Wings to Fly program.
This will be the 5th class since 2011 to benefit, enabling the program to meet its goal of 10000 beneficiaries before the target date of 2015.

We believe the best way to empower the next generation is to support them in accessing education. 
The Wings to Fly scholarships are given to top performing pupils ranked in the top 5 percentile in the 2014 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam and who are economically and socially marginalized, from every district where Equity Bank has a branch. 

Only children from needy backgrounds who would otherwise not afford to join Form 1 without financial support are considered for the scholarships.
