2013 Secondary School Scholarships
This year, Equity Group Foundation and The MasterCard Foundation with support from USAID and KfW, will, offer 2,895 secondary school scholarships across the country through the Wings To Fly program.
We believe the best way to empower the next generation is to support them in accessing education.
The Wings To Fly scholarships are given to top performing pupils ranked in the top 5 percentile in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam and who are economically and socially marginalized, from every district where Equity Bank has a branch.
