Exness, the multi-asset broker, has announced the extension of its popular Fintech Scholarships program to Kenya in collaboration with the United States International University (USIU). The initiative aims to support exceptional university students in the STEM field in Kenya, specifically third and fourth-year USIU undergraduates in Data Science, Analytics, and Software Engineering, or students accepted for the MSc in Information Technology course commencing in September 2023.
The scholarship covers full tuition fees and living expenses, and interested students have until July 28, 2023, to submit their applications to Exness, including a CV, academic transcripts, and a motivation letter.
Exness is committed to promoting education in the countries where it operates, and Kenya becomes the third country to benefit from this scheme. Previously, two students from Cyprus received scholarships to study at the University of Cambridge, with applications now open for 2023, and three students from South Africa had the opportunity to pursue post-graduate studies at the prestigious University of Cape Town.
Martin Thorvaldsson, Exness Head of Community, expressed delight in launching the Fintech Scholarships program in yet another country, emphasizing the company’s belief in the importance of higher education for shaping the future of the youth. He added that technology and innovation are vital for any economy, and Exness is dedicated to supporting bright minds that can contribute to their growth and development.
Professor Margee Ensign, Vice Chancellor at United States International University Africa, expressed excitement about the partnership with Exness, stating that the Fintech Scholarships offer valuable opportunities for Kenyan youth to realize their full potential and aspirations in the technology space. She believes that education must align with local and global challenges to transform society effectively.
