KUCCPS 2023 Application Portal with Degree Fees and Scholarships Options

All KCSE 2022 students who scored C+ (plus) and above qualify to apply for a degree course, at a university of their choice. The application requires that you log into The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) online portal. You will find all the degree courses categorized according to the universities offering them, alongside their respective tuition fees, PER ACADEMIC YEAR.

FOR EXAMPLE, those who will qualify to study BACHELOR OF MEDICINE & SURGERY at KENYATTA UNIVERSITY will be required to pay Ksh612,000 per year.

The Government of Kenya will offer FULL SCHOLARSHIP to ONLY 45,000 university students this year. You will only qualify for full scholarship if you can demonstrate that you’re EXTREMELY NEEDY AND VULNERABLE. The Ministry says they have a targeting tool (sort of a Poverty Questionnaire) that will help them to identify the 45,000. PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE TERMS: EXTREMELY NEEDY AND GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP. They’re yet to share with the public the poverty indicators they shall use, but if we now know that if you went to a PRIVATE PUBLIC OR SECONDARY SCHOOL count yourself out of GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP, my friend.

A total of 173,127 KCSE 2022 students scored C+ (plus) and above. If you subtract the 45,000 that will receive full Gov’t scholarship, you remain with 128,127 students who shall fight it out for the next level of graduated funding, as follows:

The Ministry says that students from NEEDY HOUSEHOLDS joining universities will receive GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIPS of up to a maximum of 53% and loans of up to 40%. The remaining 07% will be footed by YOUR FAMILY. PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE TERMS: NEEDY HOUSEHOLDS AND GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP.

Let’s assume you come from a needy household and have been admitted to study BACHELOR OF MEDICINE & SURGERY at KENYATTA UNIVERSITY.

The total amount of money you will be required to pay per year is Ksh612,000.

If the Gov’t, through their poverty questionnaire, finds you eligible for Gov’t scholarship, you will only receive UP TO 53% Scholarship. Which means, on the higher side, Ksh324,000 of your Ksh612,000 tuition will be taken care of by the Gov’t. PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE TERM: UP TO. Again, we haven’t seen the poverty matrix to be used to establish the percentage of Gov’t scholarship you will receive. It might be 0.1% or 19% or the 53% upper limit. POLITE REMINDER: Please pray first before applying for the Gov’t Scholarship. The President says your chances will increase ten-fold if you pray before opening the application form.

Now, assuming you received the UPPER LIMIT of 53% GOV’T SCHOLARSHIP, you will then head to the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) offices to apply for a LOAN of UP TO 40% of the Ksh612,000. I repeat. AGAIN, PLEASE,

TAKE NOTE OF THE TERM: UP TO. This means while you will ask HELB to please loan you 40% of Ksh612,000 for your tuition, HELB will not be obligated to give you the full amount.

They will also use their own poverty matrix to award you the loan. It might be 0.1% or 3% or the 40% upper limit. POLITE REMINDER: Please pray first before applying for the HELB loan. The President says your chances will increase ten-fold if you pray before opening the application form.

Assuming your prayers work and you receive the 53% GOV’T SCHOLARSHIP and the 40% HELB LOAN, you will still be required to organize a Harambee back in your village to raise the remaining 7% of the tuition fees, every year. I have done this breakdown on this notebook of mine which I bought with my own guava money.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP OF ANY KIND FOR THOSE WHO SHALL APPLY TO JOIN PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES. BUT YOU WILL BE FREE TO APPLY FOR HELB LOAN.
