These will be the pioneer class of the new university funding model that was unveiled by the president in May but will start being effected in September.

New Funding Model

The new model is a needs-based and student-centered approach designed to ensure that all Kenyan students, regardless of their financial background, have access to quality university education.

Although applications are free, students will be required to have a valid email address, telephone number, KCPE and KCSE index numbers, ID, Passport photo, Admission letter of their college/university, birth certificate, parent/guardian registered phone number, and death certificate if the parent is deceased.

Students who require funding will now be required to make applications via the Helb portal www.hef.co.ke.

The level of funding that a student receives will depend on their category. Vulnerable and extremely needy students will receive 100% funding, while needy students will receive 93% funding.

Less needy students will receive 70% funding, and they will be required to contribute 30% of the tuition fees.

The funding will be provided in the form of scholarships and loans.

Scholarships will be awarded to students who meet the academic requirements and who come from the most disadvantaged backgrounds.

Loans will be available to students who do not qualify for scholarships, but who still need financial assistance.

The new funding model is expected to increase access to higher education for students from poor backgrounds.
