New Imperial scholarship will develop future African leaders
Imperial will help develop future African leaders through a new scholarship programme.
The Beacon Scholarship – open to undergraduate students from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda – will support students in financial need.
The project – funded with The Beacon Equity Trust – will be the first Imperial scholarship open specifically to students from those countries.
Vice President (International) Maggie Dallman said: “This new scholarship will support exceptional students from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda who don’t have the financial resources to study at one of the world’s best universities.
