While majority of Kenyan students aspire to further their education abroad with most limited by either the lack of Visa, tuition fees and or opportunities to go and study abroad, Kenyan students can now have a sigh of relief following a memorandum of understanding that was signed on Tuesday by the Ministry of Education and the Hungarian government.

This Inter-Ministerial of Understanding is on the Stipendum Hungaricum Programme that is set to run between the years 2021 to 2023.

This MOU will see Kenyan students get 100 scholarships annually to go and study in various universities in Hungary and at various study levels.

Among those levels include, 20 scholarships annually for undergraduate (BA/BSc) studies and these are in the fields of Agriculture Science, Computer Science and Information Technology, Economic Science, Engineering Science, Health Science, Sport Science and Natural Science.

The MA/MSc graduate will have 40 scholarships annually for those interested in studying in the fields of Agriculture Science, Computer Science and Informational Technology, Legal Science, Economic Science, Engineering Science, Medical and Health Science and Natural Science.

There will also be 20 annual PHD/DLA scholarships and will be offered to those interested in studying in any field of interest.

Additionally, there will be 20 scholarships annually for one-tier (OTM) studies in the fields of general medicine, dentistry, pharmacology, architecture and veterinary medicine.

This bilateral educational cooperation agreement, as explained by Amb. Simon Nabukwesi, the Principal Secretary, University Education and Research, will promote cooperation between the two countries in the areas of science, research and innovation.

He further noted that these scholarships will address Kenya’s big four agenda namely, Affordable Housing, Universal Health Care, Manufacturing and Food Security by providing skilled personnel.

‘’We are committed to working better and more closely, towards common goals, the pursuit of holistic education, the availability of international opportunities and research programs will ensure graduates will become successful individuals in their selected careers.

We strongly hope our coming together is not for a mere signing of an agreement but rather a step towards shaping the future world.  ’’ Added the PS.
