Bushiri scholarship also open to students from public universities – Nyondo – Malawi 24

The Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s spokesman, Ephraim Nyondo, has quashed reports that the Bushiri scholarship program is only open to students from private universities, saying students from public universities can also apply.

It comes amid claims on social media that the scholarship scheme is restricted to students from private universities, excluding potential applicants from public universities.

However, Nyondo quashed the reports and said the scholarship program is also open to students from public universities who meet the conditions and qualifications.

The spokesperson also emphasized that the scholarship program is free and further urged applicants to be alert to scammers who may ask them for money during the application process.

“As the debate between Unima and non-Unima students continues to rage, please note that the Shepherd Bushiri Scholarship Program is open to all students in need, in both public and private institutions.

“Also take note that the scholarship, as expected, is completely FREE and the application process is still ongoing. If you are a student in need, please apply or if you know someone in need, help them apply to gain access to this program,” Nyondo said.

Meanwhile, Nyondo also confirmed that the deadline for receiving applications is next week, Thursday, March 24, 2022, and encouraged students in need to send in their applications before the closing date.

According to a recent press briefing by Prophet Bushiri, the scholarship scheme targets 5,000 underprivileged Malawian secondary and university students in both private and public institutions across the country.

Beneficiaries of the program are encouraged to replicate the favor of other less privileged students after their own graduation.
