Here at Kenya Wildlife Trust, we recognize the importance of investing in Kenya’s conservation leaders of the future.

The Justice Ole Keiwua Scholarship was established in 2005 for that exact purpose - to support promising individuals with a passion for wildlife and conservation, but who cannot afford to support themselves through higher education.

We invite applications from individuals who have already gained a place to study at university, KWSTI or KGS. We encourage applications from students from the key wildlife areas that we focus on, namely Amboseli/Tsavo, Laikipa/Samburu and the Greater Mara.

Successful applicants are given the financial support needed to complete their higher education. Since 2005, our scholarship program has changed the lives of Kenya’s future conservation leaders, equipping them with a solid education in a field that they are passionate about and committed to pursuing.

Our Scholarship Program supports students with a university place to study conservation-related subjects, as well as students attending the Kenya Wildlife Service Training Institute and the Koiyaki Guiding School.
