The Kipaji Scholarship Fund was established specifically for bright students from developing nations. Students from these nations may have the potential but not the financial resources to attend the University of Twente. The scholarship is intended to provide further assistance to UTS scholarship students.
The Kipaji Scholarship Fund was established specifically for talented students from the DAC’s list of Least Developed Countries and Other Low Income Countries.
