Since 2007, SEED has provided 16 post-secondary scholarships to high-achieving students across Kenya. Many recipients were also beneficiaries of the SEED High School Scholarship program. With annual costs over $1000, most high school graduates are unable to afford post-secondary education. The scholarship operates as a 50% grant, 50% loan structure, where beneficiaries are required to pay back the loan portion of their scholarship within 3 years of receiving full-time employment.
This program will be phased out by 2023 to focus our resources on SEED Junior Academy.
