The Higher Education Loans Board awards scholarships to postgraduate students pursuing their Masters and Doctoral studies.
The award is based on academic merit.
Each university is allocated a limited number of scholarships per year based on the population of their regular students.
Scholarship forms are available from the board's website and a processing fee of ksh. 3,000 is payable on submission of the form.

I applied for Helb scholarship in June 2010. I would like to know whether I qualified for it, and if I did then what should I do towards the same. If the process is not over yet, then when can I check?

I suggest that you consider revising the age limit upwards.45 years for PhD and 35 for masters.Many disadvantaged Kenyans are now accessing education at advanced age and they end up performing equally well if not better than the youngsters. I am a case in point.I went for my undergraduate at 35 and got First Class Honors.I could not get a scholarship! Reason,past the age.I struggled through the Masters programme and scored straight A's. Now Iam 43,age limit for PhD scholarships 40!!!!!

HELB should consider lifting age-limit restrictions, and award qualified MA/PhD students irrespective of the year of admission.They also need to clearly specify the scholarship requirements.

Thank you for the wealth of knowledge.

Thank you for having a human heart of helping those who are unfortunately disadvantaged.Although I am going through the challenges I indicated early,GOD has good plans for me.Recapturing back,I complited my primary and secondary miracurously.I Was ever out of school because of lack of school fees,torn out uniforms,sometimes it forced me to stay hungly for two days,I mean I had nearly lost hope in life.I was ever encouraged from the Bible that GOD has good plans for His people and that He will never forshake us.Ithank GOD for bringing me this far.
Kindly help me to achieve my dream of becoming a professor THANK YOU.
