Bad News To 45,000 Students Joining Form One After The Ministry Of Education Reveals This

With only a few days remaining for thousands of students who just completed their primary school education, expected to join secondary schools, the ministry of education may have shattered some dreams.

The hopes of 45,000 candidates in last year’s KCPE to get full Form One scholarships have been dashed after the government released a list of beneficiaries.

This follows revelations that only 9,000 have been selected to benefit from the Elimu Scholarship Programme.

The programme targets learners from poor and vulnerable backgrounds from 110 sub-counties and 15 urban centres that have informal settlements in Kenya.

A total of 54,000 applications were received in the scholarship programme.

The scholarship is meant for candidates who scored 280 marks and above.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha will unveil the beneficiaries on Thursday at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development.

Beneficiaries will have their full school fees for the entire period of secondary school education in the public secondary school paid.

They will also be provided with school uniforms, learning materials and personal effects for the entire period of secondary schooling.
