NAIROBI: 9th January 2024
County Executive for Talents, Skills Development and Care Ms. Rosemary Kariuki accompanied by the Chief Officer for Early Childhood Development Education and Vocational Training Mr. Ahmed Abdi have begun the process of vetting applicants for Governor Sakaja’s Scholarship program.
The vetting process for Governor Sakaja’s bursary scholarship in Nairobi involves a thorough assessment of students’ academic performance, financial need, and overall eligibility. A committee reviews applications, considering factors such as family income, academic achievements, and any exceptional circumstances. Interviews and document verification are part of the vetting process to ensure transparency and fairness. The goal is to identify bright and deserving students who may not have the financial means to pursue education without assistance.
Said the County Executive “I stand before you to shed light on the crucial and meticulous process of vetting students applying for Governor Sakaja’s bursary scholarship in Nairobi. This initiative, aimed at supporting the bright but needy, is not just about financial assistance; it’s about investing in the future of our community.
The vetting process is a comprehensive evaluation, ensuring that every scholarship recipient is not only academically gifted but genuinely in need of financial support.”
“The committee will meticulously review applications, considering various factors such as family income, academic achievements, and unique circumstances that may impact a student’s ability to pursue education. Interviews and document verification play a pivotal role in this process, offering a personal touch to the evaluation. Through these interactions, we gain a deeper understanding of each applicant’s story – their aspirations, challenges, and the resilience that propels them forward. It’s not merely about grades on a transcript but about identifying those exceptional individuals who, despite financial hurdles, shine brightly in their pursuit of knowledge.” She said
The Chief Officer Mr. Abdi said “Transparency and fairness are the guiding principles of this vetting process. Governor Sakaja’s commitment to creating equal opportunities for all is reflected in the diligence exercised by the committee. By ensuring that every decision is grounded in merit, we uphold the integrity of the scholarship program and empower the most deserving students to access quality education.”
Mr. Abdi said “The bursary scholarship has supported many students and will continue doing so to give hope to the hopeless and support the dreams of the future generation. More learners will benefit from the bursaries and scholarships as we progress”
Ms. Kariuki said “The vetting of Governor Sakaja’s bursary applicants is a testament to our collective dedication to fostering a community where talent is nurtured, irrespective of financial constraints. As we embark on this journey of investing in the potential of our youth, let us celebrate not only the scholars who emerge but also the spirit of inclusivity and empowerment that defines this initiative. Together, we shape a brighter future for Nairobi—one student at a time.”
