Read on to learn how you can be part of this life-changing program.
KenSAP Scholarship Requirements
The KenSAP scholarship program offers a transformative opportunity for Kenyan students. However, it’s essential to understand and meet the specific requirements for the Class of 2024. These criteria are designed to identify candidates who are most likely to succeed in the program and beyond.
- Completion of Secondary Education: Applicants must have completed Form Four at a Kenyan secondary school as of December 2023. This ensures that all candidates have a uniform educational background and are ready for the challenges ahead.
- Minimum Score Requirement: A key academic criterion is the attainment of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) in December 2023.
- Score Threshold: Candidates must have scored at least an A- in the KCSE. This high standard highlights KenSAP’s commitment to academic excellence and ensures that the program supports students who have demonstrated significant academic achievement.
- Language Skills: English proficiency is crucial for success in North American universities. Therefore, a minimum score of B in English in the KCSE is required. This requirement ensures that students are prepared for the English-based curriculum they will encounter abroad.
Special Note for A- Scorers
- Additional Requirement: If you scored an A- in your KCSE, a supplementary statement is required. This statement should articulate why KenSAP should consider your application alongside candidates with higher scores. This provides an opportunity for A- scorers to demonstrate unique qualities or circumstances that make them suitable candidates for the program.
- Adherence to Requirements: It’s crucial to understand that applications not meeting these specified requirements will not be considered. This strict adherence to criteria ensures fairness and maintains the high standards of the KenSAP program. Read APU Post UTME 2023/2024-Ahman Pategi University
