Uganda news update – Madhvani Foundation offers 550 Mio UShs for 2011/12 academic year


‘Gifted, hardworking and financially challenged Ugandan students’, to quote the Madhvani Foundation in regard to its target group, will once again benefit from available scholarships worth the equivalent of nearly 250.000 US Dollars, or 550 million Uganda Shillings.

Courses are not just limited to the traditional science or engineering fields but can include hospitality and tourism management too, opening the door for more students to apply for consideration.

Applications are invited until the 31st of May and details can be sourced via or by writing to  which is Uganda’s largest privately operated scholarship foundation scheme and trust.

The Madhvani Group is at the forefront of Uganda’s hospitality investments in the safari lodge sector in Uganda with presently three lodges in two national parks but also, probably even better known for their Kakira Sugar Company, their manufacturing and insurance interests and is one of the best reputed family concerns in the country.
