The scholarship program seeks to assist individuals, at various levels of the education cycle, who are struggling to source funds for their education. The program will match 40% of the individual’s tuition fee, regardless of which level of education they are in. The other 60% of the cost is to be raised by the individual through various means – it has been noted that the main struggle is sourcing the entire tuition fee at one go, thus the matching system works to create accountability and individual buy-in.
The ministry has set up some guidelines and policies to ensure that all candidates seeking assistance are screened accordingly. As of January 2014 a new system was put in place to allow all ministry, church and individual entities to fund-raise their finances to ensure smooth support.
The need for financial assistance is quite high and meeting the need, even with the new system, will remain a challenge. If you would like to offer assistance, a one time donation, monthly assistance, or the sponsoring of a student, please get in touch with Flood Malawi for more details.
