Tertiary Education Scholarship Trust (TEST) 2023-2024 for UGANDA

Tertiary Education Scholarship Trust (TEST) for UGANDA is a registered Ugandan Charitable Trust. It was formed by a group of graduates from Oxford University and is a constituent member of the UK Charity, TEST for AFRICA. TEST for UGANDA provides both full and partial scholarships for undergraduate study in a wide spectrum of academic and practical subjects which in the opinion of the Trustees are best oriented towards the social and economic development needs of Uganda. Awards are biased towards females (60:40) from the poorest regions of UGANDA, and are also available to handicapped students. Scholarships are offered to both new and to continuing students in public universities in Uganda, and are reviewed annually against both need and academic performance.
