Kipaji Scholarship Fund

The Kipaji Scholarship Fund is aimed at talented engineering students from countries where the economy is just emerging, such as in parts of South America, Africa and Asia. Students from these countries sometimes have the potential but not the means to follow a study programme at a first-rate university. The Fund was set up by a number of committed alumni and contacts of the University of Twente. ‘Kipaji’ means gift and talent in Swahili; your donation is a wonderful gift for these talented individuals. They can make a difference; what about you?

Education is the passport to the future. Not just for individuals, but whole countries.

It is incredibly important that these students are given the opportunity to come and study at Twente, not only for the University of Twente and the Dutch knowledge economy, but also for the development of these talented individuals and the emerging economies in their homelands.
