The Kipaji Scholarship Fund is founded especially for talented students from countries with upcoming economies. Students from these countries could have the potential, but not the means to study at the University of Twente. The scholarship is meant as additional support for UTS scholarship students.
The Kipaji Scholarship Fund is founded especially for talented students from the Least Developed Countries and Other Low Income Countries on the DAC list. Students from these countries could have the potential, but not the means to study at the University of Twente. The Kipaji Scholarship supports students who also receive a University of Twente Scholarship. Students cannot apply for the Kipaji scholarship through the UT application system. Those interested should indicate in their UTS motivation that they also wish to be considered for the Kipaji scholarship when they meet the criteria.
The Kipaji Scholarship Fund was founded by a couple of alumni and relations of the University of Twente and is also supported by the staff and alumni of the University of Twente. With an annual fundraising campaign alumni and employees are asked to support this scholarship fund.
Please note: The Kipaji Scholarship is not available for current UT students. This programme is also not available for Master's programmes at the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC)
