Teso Education Fund (TEF) runs a scholarship programme from 2021. The scholarships are offered to students in the Teso sub region in eastern Uganda. The scholarships are offered annually in December-January to target studies starting in February-March.
These scholarships are offered equitably across the district of Teso. However, TEF has an affirmative action policy. TEF offers 60% of these scholarships to qualified female applicants and 10% to qualified applicants with disability.
To apply, an applicant must have:
- A letter of admission to an institution of education or training.
- Academic certificates.
- A national identification card.
- A letter of recommendation from their Local Council 1 chairperson.
- A personal statement explaining why they should be awarded a scholarship.
TEF has so far provided full sponsorship to 24 students under this scheme. 85% of our sponsored students have studied science courses such as clinical medicine, nursing, laboratory techniques, engineering, building and construction, pharmacy, agriculture, business, and education.
