All Scholarship programs to be regulated by government foundation
The Ministry of Education has revealed that the process of making the Jomo Kenyatta Foundation (JKF) the regulator for scholarship programmes in the country is on course.
Education Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Sarah Ruto yesterday said expanding the mandate of JKF to become a centre for coordinating various scholarship programmes is a conversation that should conclude soon.
She said JKF is strategically positioned to regulate the scholarships because it is the only government foundation providing basic education scholarships.
She made the remarks in Nairobi when she presided over the presentation of JKF scholarships worth Sh22.2 million to 144 beneficiaries.
JKF Managing Director David Mwaniki said the proposal to give the publisher an added mandate could not have come at a better time.
“We urge the Ministry to fast track the proposal to streamline the scholarship programme. We are ready for this new challenge,” he said.
