Nyashep Education Trust supports bright students who complete primary school education but unable to join high school due to financial constrains through the award of education sponsorship.
Nyashep regard sponsorship chances available as opportunities and NOT charity. As such, in accordance with Nyashep criteria, we support only those who are bright, from needy backgrounds, of good character and demonstrated inner drive to succeed.
Those who qualify are considered for sponsorship to join secondary school from January of every year.
Final selection and award of scholarships takes place after the official announcement of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results in December every year.
A call for scholarship applications is done the first week of before Christmas. Scholarship Application Forms are made available from our Kendu Bay office, and distributed to all primary schools around.

We support bright but needy students who complete primary school, but unable to join secondary school due to financial constrain
Full sponsorship is whereby a sponsor covers the full monetary support of $1650 per year or $137 per month for four years or a one off payment of $6,500. This means 1 child is paired with 1 sponsor.
Co-sponsorship is a sponsorship program that enables sponsors who are not able to raise the current full sponsorship fee to still be a part of us. For co-sponsorship we will maintain the full sponsorship amount and allow 2 sponsors to sponsor 1 child. The cost will be $825 per year or $69 per month for four years or a one off payment of $3,300. The beneficiary will write to both sponsors.
Pay required sponsorship fee by November 15th of the preceding year.
In the month of January, Nyashep communicates on student matched to your sponsorship, and successful applicants are awarded 4 years education sponsorship. They are expected to maintain good academic performance.
The name and personal details of the child assigned to a sponsor are then communicated once the final selections are made by the Nyashep team, during the month of January.
