Appeal for support of needy students - UoN Needy Students Fund (UoN-NSF)

The Office of the Dean of Students is inviting well wishers to donate material items or cash for support of University of Nairobi needy students to help them cope with life and learning at home during this Covid-19 period. The Office has identified three key needs that students require support in: 1.  Material needs – food and nonfood items 2.  Technological needs – smart phones, tablets and laptops for eLearning 3.  Financial needs – school fees and money for upkeep


The University has been supporting needy students through variuos avenues. Since the beginning of the FY 2022-2023, over 700 students have requested for support. The University supported 181 needy students with bursaries and scholarships from our partners. Additionaly, over 500 students have been placed on the University work study program. However, with more and more students requesting for support, these interventions are not adequate and there is the fear of some students opting to defer their studies.
