Please remember you have to have been accepted by one of the accredited institutions in one of the accepted disciplines, and the form must be submitted to that institution and not to the Trust itself.
NO FEES: Forms are free to download, there is no application fee and we do not work with any organisation that will charge applicants any fees. Additionally, you should not pay any person or organisation for help to fill out the application form, as this will disqualify you.
Applications and Means Testing
All applicants must have a valid offer from their relevant accredited educational institution in one of the accepted disciplines and must file their application for TEST for UGANDA scholarship support with their proposed educational institution and not with the Trust itself. The specified time frame for submission must be respected and the application complete. There are no exceptions allowed for late submission or for incomplete applications, as any such application will be automatically disqualified.
Applicants are required to complete a comprehensive application form which provides extensive detail of their background, family and financial standing plus a history of their academic achievements. All claims made in the application must be accompanied by appropriate documentary support as proof of that claim. Applicants who falsify any claim will have their scholarship withdrawn. The application form includes a 500 word essay describing why applicants feel they are eligible and how they intend to use their education to improve the socio-economic prospects of Uganda.
TEST for UGANDA Scholarships are not automatically renewed as students need to have demonstrated considerable academic progress in their academic work as well as have their financial status re-assessed annually.
