According to a statement shared on the Embassy’s official platforms, students who have done well in their exams are encouraged to apply.
“The EducationUSA Scholars Program is a college access program that aims to identify, recruit, and support 40 academically strong students for admission to universities in the United States.
“The ESP application reflects the competitive nature of admission to these universities as we seek out the best people and the brightest minds,” read the statement.
The program does not work with graduate students who have already completed their undergraduate studies at local universities.
The minimum score to join the program is an overall KCSE grade of A-. Students who took their KCSE before 2022 are not eligible.
Interested students should visit the U.S. Embassy Nairobi Twitter account to find out how to apply.
After reviewing the scorecards, eligible students will receive the application form and other application details via email.
According to the US Embassy, students who scored less than 74 in the KCSE do not need to apply, as such applications will not be considered.
