All our trainees from September 2023 intake qualify for Higher Education Funding under the HEF  scheme. To apply:



The New Funding Model[NFM] was unveiled by the President of the Republic of Kenya on 3rd May 2023, to address the challenges that public universities and TVET colleges were enduring, which were attributed primarily to massive enrolment and inadequate funding. The funding model is student-centered, and loans and bursaries will be apportioned to students based on their assessed level of need. The universities and TVET will no longer receive block funding in the form of capitation. The funding to students shall combine scholarships, loans, and household contributions on a graduated scale determined by the Means Testing Instrument [MTI]. Students from extremely needy and vulnerable backgrounds will pay nothing to colleges and universities.

Key Players in the New Funding Model
1. Higher Education Loans Board: For Provision of Loans and Bursaries to students enrolled in TVET Colleges and Universities [Public and Private]
2. Universities Funding: Provision of Undergraduate Scholarships to Government Sponsored Students enrolled in Public Universities
3. Kenya Universities and Colleges Placement Service: For placement of Students in their desired and qualified courses upon application
4. State Department Of Technical Education: Provision of TVET scholarships
5. Higher Learning Institutions-The recipients of loans and scholarships awarded to students in the form of fees
6. Parents: To support the household’s contributions.
