We have always said that your journey to success begins at Cavendish University Uganda. However, that journey does not end here. Dr. Olive Sabiti, our Dean of Law, is in charge of a prestigious international scholarship programme for higher education.
The programme is known as the Equity and Merit Scholarships for Manchester University, and many students have benefitted from it.These graduates have gone on to run world-changing initiatives, and to hold powerful positions in both the public and private sector.
According to Joanne Jacobs, the current head of the scholarship program, the University waives the tuition fee in full and the generosity of alumni and NGO’s covers students' living costs and flights to the UK.
“The scholarship aims to assist talented but economically disadvantaged students from some of the world’s poorest countries to attain an education in fields which they would otherwise not be able to afford,” she said.
The scheme operates in Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and Bangladesh and scholarships are available for students to undertake postgraduate Masters Degrees that are not available in their home country and which are intended to fill a particular skills gap.
Dr. Olive attended the 10-Year Celebration of the Scholarship Programme and interacted with graduates and officials.
