Kenya’s New University Funding and School Fees Model Expounded

Kenya’s New University Funding and School Fees Model Expounded

Instead of academic achievement, the new university funding model for government-sponsored students considers a student’s poverty condition. Formerly known as government-sponsored students, students with a KCSE score of C+ or better were qualified to participate in a degree program with government funding.

Your KCSE score would determine whether or not you received government financing, regardless of whether you came from a wealthy or poor background. It was simple and well-known, and it had been around for a while.

While government scholarships must be applied for through the site that will be supplied by the government, loans must be applied for through HELB loan. At private universities, students can only get loans.

The government will provide financial aid to all university students enrolled in public institutions. At least 93% of the cost of education will be covered for all students, affluent or poor.

The new funding scheme is tailored to students. That is, rather than making generalizations that ultimately leave the most needy still trapped, it intends to concentrate on financing each student based on their individual needs. In place of equality, it is emphasizing equity.

If you are recognized as being in the “Vulnerable” category, you will be able to attend classes on campus for free. I do mean free. You won’t be required to pay anything as a parent. Both a scholarship (82%) and a HELB loan (18%) are available to you. The needs of the student will be met in full. To join campus, there is no need to raise money.

If you are classified as “Very Needy,” your college expenses will also be entirely covered. Scholarship will receive 70% of the allocation in this situation, while HELB loan will receive 30%. In this instance, the government has boosted HELB loan allotment while decreasing the rate at which scholarships are distributed.

If you are classified as “Needy,” you will only be required to pay 7% of your total fees. The government would offer up to 70% in scholarships and 40% in HELB loans.

If you fall into the “Less Needy” group, only 7% of the total costs will be your responsibility. The government will cover the remaining costs through HELB loans (55%), and scholarships (38%).

But anyone who chooses to enroll in a private university is doing so at their own risk. To take advantage of these benefits, students enrolled at private universities can apply for inter-university transfer.

Stop complaining now and take advantage of the situation while it still exists. Whether you are in need or not is unknown to the government. It is up to you to submit an application with the proper supporting documentation.

In order to pay for new university students, a combination of scholarships, loans, and parental contributions will be needed. There will be four types of student loan financing. These students are less vulnerable, dependent, and in need of assistance.
