We are excited to introduce a scholarship fund for Lenana Girls High School students. The fund will enable the school to accept a number of new and promising students who cannot afford to pay admission fees. Each scholarship amounts to USD1,000, €750, or £650 per year for the four years long school attendance and is a tax-deductible donation. The scholarship awards one student a full scholarship for their tuition, food and housing for one full academic year.
Other Considerations If you cannot afford to cover an entire scholarship, there are many other ways you can contribute. Other options for the scholarship fund include:
$500 Awards one student a partial scholarship for their tuition and meals for one year.
$250 Employs a full-time high school teacher for one month.
$150 Purchases a full school uniform and games kit (athletics uniforms) for one student.
$100 Buys a chair and locker for one student.
$50 Buys a textbook for the school's library.
Any other amount you are able to contribute will be pooled together with other contributions and put toward the initiative of your choice.
Key features of our scholarship program include:
1. Your personal favorite. Choose your favorite student from our database of high-potential applicants found under the "sponsor a Lenana Girls student" page.
2. Agreement. Send us your agreement and donation to cover the school fees for your chosen Scholar. The scholarship can be paid in annual installments or as one lump sum.
3. Personal Scholarship Certificate. Create a name for your scholarship (e.g. John Smith Memorial Scholarship) and you will receive a certificate designed by one of our local artists and a thank you note from your scholar.
4. Progress reports. You will receive annual progress reports with your scholar's performance records and a letter.
5. Mentorship Academies. At annual Mentorship Academies, we teach our scholars career-building skills and encourage them to design strategies to strengthen their communities. We also provide additional mentoring services for anything your scholar wishes to discuss or learn about.
