UNICAF was founded in 2012, with its name reflecting its origins, having initially evolved from the University of Nicosia, the largest, independent tertiary education institution in Cyprus. While initially focusing solely on Africa, it has been expanding its range to offer scholarships to students worldwide, provided they meet certain eligibility criteria. UNICAF has established a number of branch campuses and information centres in Africa, such as in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, Uganda, Somalia, Zambia and Malawi. Already more than 12,000 have taken advantage of the UNICAF scholarships and registered to one of the partnership programmes. The number of students is estimated to increase to 60,000 by the year 2020. The learning centres are set up to include digital libraries, computer labs, internet, generators and make students less prone to the studying in areas with partially inadequate infrastructures.
“While education in Africa is rising and demand for skilled people also ascends, there are serious challenges to Africans reaching quality Higher Education (HE) levels that are recognised by the world’s employers. The gap in the market needs to be addressed now… if the 2040 African labour force is to have global value

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP:
University education in Kenya has come a long way. From the days, in the not so distant past, when you could count on one hand people with degrees in your village, to now, when many of your acquaintances have at least an undergraduate degree.
Getting a Master’s Degree is predominantly determined by your financial capacity. A Master’s degree is considered by most people an opportunity to redefine their career paths and gain a competitive advantage in their industry. It is, therefore, a top priority on the list of most professionals, who are determined to get ahead in their careers. Yet, despite being a priority, it remains a distant dream for most, mainly because of the high costs associated with studying for a Master’s degree in local universities.
This has been the situation in Kenya until UNICAF came about.
