Exness, the multi-asset broker, partners with United States International University (USIU) to extend its fintech scholarship program in Kenya.
Exness, a multi-asset broker, has teamed up with United States International University (USIU), a reputable university in Kenya, to expand its fintech scholarship program there.
Exness Fintech Scholarships are designed to aid exceptional college students majoring in STEM. The program, which is currently offered in Kenya, is open to USIU third- and fourth-year undergraduate students majoring in data science, analytics, and software engineering as well as those who have accepted an offer to enroll in the MSc in Information Technology program starting in September 2023.
Each scholarship pays for all of the living and tuition costs. Exness encourages interested candidates to submit an application by July 28, 2023, together with a CV, academic transcripts, and a motivation letter.
Kenya now receives benefits from the program as the third nation. Exness offered three students from South Africa the option to continue post-graduate studies at the University of Cape Town, while two students from Cyprus accepted scholarships to study at the University of Cambridge last year.
Exness stated that the expansion into Kenya demonstrates its dedication to promoting education in any nation it conducts business in.
The development of the scholarship program was mentioned by Martin Thorvaldsson, head of community at Exness: “We are pleased to be able to establish our Exness Fintech Scholarships program in yet another country. Exness recognizes the value of higher education for the future of our young and is proud to support exceptional students as they pursue the STEM jobs and futures they envision.
We are committed to helping the minds that can contribute to their growth and development as a fintech company since we firmly believe that technology and innovation are essential sectors for every economy.
“Society, learning, and education need to align with local and global challenges”
The vice chancellor of United States International University Africa, Professor Margee Ensign, also spoke about the prospect for Kenyan students, saying, “As a university, we are really excited about our cooperation with Exness. The Exness Fintech Scholarships are designed to give young Kenyans the chance to realize their full potential and dreams in the field of technology.
“We are adamant that learning and education must be in line with regional and global possibilities and problems in order to effectively alter society. The scholarship degree programs in information security, software engineering, and data science are real game changers for the 21st century.
