“I made this directive after being satisfied that the Placement service has made conditions for the new model having verified all the fee details of all programmes on their website. These details will be available for all students,” he stated.
Further, the Education CS reiterated that courses in public universities would only be eligible for both government scholarships and loans while those selected in private universities would be eligible for government loans.
In order to assist in the application process, the Placement Service was directed to partner with the Huduma Secretariat to ensure students could apply from all 52 Huduma Centres countrywide.
After the application process, CS Machogu affirmed that the students would be expected to contact their respective institutions for joining instructions and guidance on how to apply for Government scholarships and loans, which would be issued in accordance with the funding model.
The deadline is set for June 7, 2023.
