SCHOLARSHIPS

For less than $3/day, your merit based scholarships donation provides low income families from rural East Africa an opportunity for their youth to receive financial aid, student support, and quality education. This allows motivated students to immediately access higher quality education.

This year we have 46 students still waiting for their chance to learn!

At Asante Africa Foundation we believe that every child has the right to learn grow and succeed in today’s society. In rural East Africa, parents often give boys a priority when it comes to sending a child to school. Our scholarships, given to both boys and girls, provide equal opportunity for rural youth to receive a quality education, giving them a shot at their dreams!

WE PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS, NOT SPONSORSHIPS

Our students must meet certain standards to receive a scholarship. The criteria includes academic achievement, good behavior while in school, and ongoing family engagement. By creating expectations, we ensure accountability for the student and offer shared responsibility and support between Asante Africa Foundation staff and community.

Scholarships Include:

  • 1 year of tuition (including exam fees)
  • Room and board fees
  • Learning materials, uniforms, and sanitary products for girls
* All contributions to the Asante Africa Scholarship Program are fully tax-deductible. All donors who provide a full scholarship ($750+) will receive scholarship reports, student updates, and personalized letters.

Our coordinator will match you with a child that will fit your family.
