Strathmore University has partnered with KIVA, an American non- profit organization whose mission is to connect people through lending in order to alleviate poverty to offer financially disadvantaged students an opportunity to pursue degrees at the University.
Strathmore is currently accepting full tuition loan applications for its next intake.
These loans are available for incoming year one students only.
To learn more about the loans and how to apply, please contact the Financial Aid desk at the University Admissions Office.
Interviews will be conducted and successful applicants will be informed within 14 days days.
The loans are funded by social investors who lend through an online platform, KIVA, on which the students and lenders are able to connect with each other.
Students are responsible for paying back their loan after completing their degree to give additional students the ability to take advantage of this opportunity.
All students who receive a Kiva loan join the Campus Kiva club which will allow them to participate in professional skill building and community service projects.
