Hi Gayatri,

Do you know any body(ies) that would provide scholarship in Physiotherapy in Kenya?

My cousin has a diploma in physiotherapy and works at Kenyatta National Hospital, the biggest referal hospital in Kenya.
He recently joined Jomo Kenyatta University of Science & Technology for a degree course, which he is taking on a part time basis – Friday, Saturday & Sunday every week.
Being a family man with children in school to pay fees for, as well as meet other family expenses, it is a huge challenge for him to raise his own fees. He is determined to pursue his career to the highest level possible.
A scholarship would really come in handy for him in easing the financial burden on him, and enable him complete his studies faster.

Kind Regards,

Hello Syeda,
Without knowing the particulars of your situation, it would be hard to recommend one scholarship over another. The best approach might be to contact each university or institution that offers a scholarship that you are interested in. Their departments and coordinators will be better able to help you answer questions about the scholarship and offer advice on how best to apply.
Best of luck!
