At Tuendelee Foundation, we understand the impact that quality education can have on an individual, their life and their surrounding community. We provide scholarships, which cover tertiary (college/university) education tuition, exam fees, accommodation and upkeep for bright, underprivileged students who are unable to meet these costs. Our focus includes students from rural areas, urban slums, and the arid and semi-arid areas.

The Scholarship we provide may cover:

  • Tuition
  • Exam fees (for professional certifications e.g. CPA & ACCA)
  • Accommodation
  • Allowance for upkeep

Each year, we call out for applications on an annual basis, interview and select bright, talented and deserving students and offer them a scholarship to pursue their studies based on assessed needs.
