  • The United Kingdom (UK) has announced scholarship opportunities for Kenyan graduates to study in the UK for the 2022-2023 academic year.

    In the announcement seen by Kenyans.co.ke, the Commonwealth Master's Scholarship stated that the program was aimed at providing opportunities for Kenyans who cannot afford to travel to the UK for studies.

    The program, funded by the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), will see Kenyan graduates receive full scholarships for their studies in England with their air tickets catered for.
