UNHCR Seconday Education scholarships

Windle International Kenya (WIK) implements the Secondary Education Programme (SEP) scholarship with funding from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which support very bright refugees as well as learners with special needs to attend national and top extra county secondary schools outside the camp. The SEP scholarship also offers opportunity to the very needy cases from host community children by reserving 10% of scholarship spaces every year. All successful candidates are always subjected to a water tight selection process. Depending on availability of funding, every year WIK and UNHCR selects at least 20 bright and 10 SNE students.

Currently, WIK and UNHCR are supporting 122 (68 males and 54 females) bright, vulnerable and deserving students in 38 schools in 20 different counties across Kenya. In a nutshell, WIK’s vision of helping persons of concern lead transformed, peaceful and dignified lives is partially fulfilled through the SEP scholarship that has seen great transition of students from secondary to tertiary levels.
