By Exness Team

Multi-asset broker Exness is pleased to announce the expansion of its Fintech Scholarships program to Kenya in partnership with the United States International University-Africa (USIU-Africa), one of the most prestigious universities in the country. Exness Fintech Scholarships aim to empower outstanding university students to continue their studies in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.

The Exness Fintech Scholarship program in Kenya seeks to support students in the third or fourth year of their undergraduate studies in Data Science & Analytics, and Software Engineering at USIU-Africa, or students who have accepted an offer for a MSc. in Information Technology at the university starting in September 2023.

The scholarship will cover the full amount of tuition fees and living expenses for the students, enabling them to focus on their studies. Interested students are encouraged to send their applications, including a CV, academic transcripts, and a motivation letter by July 28, 2023. For more information, visit: 3135/exness-scholarship

While commenting about the new sponsorship opportunity available for USIU-Africa students, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Margee Ensign noted this partnership broadens the horizons for students and presents various pathways they can explore. “As a university, we are so excited about our partnership with Exness to offer opportunities for young people from Kenya to achieve their full potential and aspirations in the technology space. We strongly believe that to truly transform society, we need to align learning with local, national and global challenges and opportunities. The selected cutting edge degree programs in Data Science & Analytics, Software Engineering and Information Security for the scholarship are indeed game changers in every aspect of 21st century life,” she said.

With the launch of the Fintech Scholarships program in Kenya, Exness further demonstrates its commitment to supporting education in the countries it operates in. Kenya is the third country to benefit from Exness Fintech Scholarships, following Cyprus where two students have already been sent to the University of Cambridge in 2022 (and applications are now open for 2023), and South Africa where three students were given the chance to pursue post-graduate studies at the country’s top university, the University of Cape Town.

“We are incredibly happy to be able to launch our Exness Fintech Scholarships program in yet another country,” Martin Thorvaldsson, Exness Head of Community, commented. “At Exness, we recognize the importance of higher education for the future of our youth and we are honored to be part of the journey of excellent students in building the STEM careers and future they dream of. We are strong believers that technology and innovation are two of the most important sectors of every economy and as a fintech company we are dedicated to supporting the minds that can contribute to their growth and development,” Mr. Thorvaldsson continued.
