Students have been urged to acquire skills in budgeting and financial literacy to help navigate the financial market.
This is after Kenya Education Fund held its Inaugural Bridge Scholarship Meeting to discuss scholarship opportunities and financial literacy lessons.
The aim of the meeting was to equip students with invaluable knowledge on higher learning scholarships, budgeting, credit management and financial planning.
They emphasized the importance of community service, encouraging students to actively engage in giving back to their communities.
In a statement on Monday, KEF said It empowered exceptional students to thrive academically, socially and personally.
“Through our diverse range of programs, we aim to bridge educational gaps, foster academic excellence, and create a brighter future for our communities.
The event brought together 104 outgoing and 61 current bridge students.
It aimed at enhancing financial literacy, fostering community engagement, and providing essential support during their first year of university.
Alumni who benefited from previous bridge scholarships were in attendance, sharing their experiences and providing guidance to the new members.
The KEF alumni association executives also offered an orientation session to welcome and integrate the students into a vibrant alumni network.
KEF’s Inaugural Bridge Scholarship Meeting is a renowned non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities and support to deserving students.
