A leading global brokerage firm has introduced fintech scholarships in Kenya to support outstanding tech students. Exness is partnering with the United States International University (USIU) to provide scholarships covering tuition and living costs.
The awards aim to back talented Kenyan youth studying critical STEM fields like data science, analytics, and software engineering. The new scholarships are open to current third and fourth-year USIU undergraduates in eligible tech majors.
Graduating high school students accepted into USIU’s Master of Science in Information Technology program beginning this September can also apply. Interested students should send applications with transcripts, resumes, and motivation letters to Exness before July 28th, 2023.
Exness states the new Kenyan scholarships demonstrate its ongoing commitment to promoting education in its operating countries. Kenya marks the third nation where Exness is making fintech scholarships available.
Last year, two Cypriot students won full scholarships to the University of Cambridge, with 2023 applications now open. In South Africa, Exness previously awarded scholarships to three students pursuing postgraduate studies at the prestigious University of Cape Town.
“We’re excited to launch our scholarship program in another country,” said Exness Head of Community Martin Thorvaldsson. “At Exness, we recognise higher education’s importance for youth futures and are honoured to support excellent students in building their dreamed STEM careers. We believe technology and innovation are crucial economic sectors and, as a fintech company, are dedicated to empowering the minds that can advance their growth.”
USIU Vice-Chancellor Professor Margee Ensign also welcomed the new partnership with Exness. “We’re thrilled about the Exness Fintech Scholarships offering young Kenyans opportunities to achieve their full potential in technology,” Ensign stated. “To transform society, learning must align with global challenges and opportunities. These scholarship programs in data science, analytics, engineering, and security are truly game-changing.”
