Educate Your Own awards twelve scholarships during the 2019 Summer semester
By Eannes G. Ongus
This Summer, EYO has awarded twelve students with scholarships from funds raised by alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends of USIU-Africa. To date, the fund has raised over Kshs. 2 million and awarded scholarships to 39 USIU-Africa students. In order to build a more sustainable scholarship program, EYO has launched a Kshs.10 million Endowment Fund, whose projected annual yield of Kshs.1 million will support at least 20 students in perpetuity. The fund will raise money through several activities such as the annual fun run, car wash project and other giving campaigns.
Since 2015, the USIU-Africa community has become part of a larger movement that is changing the narrative for students pursuing higher education at USIU-Africa. Educate Your Own (EYO) is a fundraising campaign that supports zero dropout rate among continuing students who are facing financial challenges. USIU-Africa is committed to attracting the very best students from across the globe, to study and learn at all levels, regardless of background or circumstance.
EYO congratulates the twelve awardees of the 2019 Summer scholars and wishes them the very best of luck in their studies. EYO also wishes to most sincerely thank all supporters for creating a lifelong impact in the lives of the students through giving.
