Criteria for Scholarship Application

We award high school education scholarships to academically strong girls from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds who come from families without adequate financial resources to pay for their school fees. The scholarships typically last 4 to 6 years, on condition that the student maintains the required GPA, and their performance is at the top 50% of their class. We work with East African educators and community leaders who coordinate our scholarship program in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. We commit to giving fully paid scholarships to girls who meet the following criteria;

Excellent Academic performance

Inadequate economic and financial situation of the applicant and family (would not raise $700 a year, for the annual school fees). Received admission to one of the 17 schools in our program in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. If you meet these requirements, ask the school head teacher to put you in touch with the Coordinator who manages the GTL program in that school. You will have to complete an application form for a scholarship grant that will be vetted thoroughly by GTL.

We believe that East Africa can build on successes and improve access to schools that have seen primary school age children, out of school, decrease from 32% to 8% between 2002 and 2011. We work to support girls go beyond primary school and make sure that those successes reach girls in most underserved regions in rural areas.
