By Mwiseneza Victoire

On the 13th of this month, we secretly received a copy of the notice from a stringer around Kampala about the scholarships that both Window Trust Uganda and World University Services Canada (WUSC) have put out for refugee students to benefit from. According to the announcement, the deadline for submitting the applications is June 10th 2019, just ten days before the World Refugee Day commemoration. The requirements are a copy of a refugee status document and a copy of your Secondary School credential or its equivalent such as the Diplome D'Etats for those from D.R Congo.

It is also interesting that they value those that do not speak English because they indicate that one can apply in either English or French and that applicants can indicate the language they are fluent in on the application form. Students can also apply in handwritten or online via the Window Trust Website under the SRP (Student Refugee Program). It is very unfortunately, when we checked on the window Trust website, they had another bunch of scholarships they advertised in 2018 and only two students applied from Kyangwali; these were Otim Lazarus and Taluga Jezreel. The 2018 shortlisting can be obtained here.


If you want to print the copy of the application for the academic year 2020-2021, please click here to download a copy for yourself before it is too late to apply

You can also contact Window Trust Uganda via email at scholarshipinfo@windleuganda.org and also ask them if you encounter any concerns about the scholarships and online submissions as well.


Here at Kyangwali News we can help with those that need help filling out their applications because the days are numbered and you might be late. Request for a call via our facebook page by sending your telephone number with #WTU. Or you can chat with us 24 hours with any pressing issues.

ABOUT US 

We are an independent young journalist association with members in the U.S, Canada and Uganda. 

Our Plan is to avail News, Information and Technologies to remote places, specifically the refugee camps. Our founder realized that the UNHCR and its partners are not investing enough in providing news and information to the refugees making them vulnerable to fake news and rumors, something we are addressing. 

Kyangwali News is owned by Refugee News and Information Africa Limited (RNIA Ltd.). Among other things we are planning to address is the need for eLearning for schools through providing connectivity in the form of WiFi so students can easily surf the web at schools.
