The call for applications was meant for both undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships for the October intake of 2023.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, there has been a delay in concluding the process of selection and shortlisting. Despite the challenge, IUCEA remains committed to providing opportunities for scholarship to all interested stakeholders in the East African Community.
