Over 3,000 students in Nyakach Sub County on Friday received a total of Sh13 million in bursaries, area National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) Manager Silvance Ochola has said.
“We have strived to offer bursaries to deserving students despite high number of applicants. We will continue to increase the amount to cater for more students to cushion their parents from increased fees load,” he added.
Ochola said a total of 3, 200 learners benefited from the kitty with each student getting Sh4, 100.
The disbursement comes barely three months after another Sh15 million was released to college and university students.
Ochola who was speaking in NGCDF offices in Pap Onditi appealed to the successful applicants to work hard and improve their performances.
“You must work hard and be disciplined to achieve your dreams. We will continue to support vulnerable students to accomplish their visions,” he added.
