One of the Scholarships available to those joining secondary school is the Equity Bank’s Wings to Fly Scholarship. The program targets high achieving yet needy (orphan or vulnerable) students identified by assessing two main criteria based on academic performance at KCPE and social-economic vulnerability as follows:
- Academic achievement– Qualifying students must be in the top 5th percentile in KCPE in their District.
- Students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds – Eligible students who would not be able to attend secondary school for reasons arising from loss of one or both parents; parents who are unable to educate their children because they are physically or mentally disabled, living with HIV/AIDS or other chronic debilitating illness; families that have been displaced due to natural disasters such as floods, drought, famine or civil conflict; families that have no evidence of accumulated assets; children who show evidence of bursaries received or financial assistance in the past or who have a past history of school absenteeism due to lack of tuition fees.
Each year, the Equity Bank Group gives scholarships to needy form ones under the Wings to Fly Programme.
