The application process for the 2022 Krystle Kabare Scholarship is now open. The scholarship will award one Kenyan graduate student with disabilities a full academic scholarship to attend the University of Nairobi in September.

The Krystle Kabare Scholarship was launched in 2019 in memory of Krystle Kabare, a much-beloved staff member of Development Pathways. It contributes to the educational development of a Kenyan Master’s degree student with disabilities, studying Public Health, Anthropology, Economics, Sociology, Social Statistics or a relevant field.

The successful Scholarship recipient will also be granted the opportunity to intern at the Development Pathways Kenya office, and to supplement their learning by contributing to social policy initiatives in Kenya during the duration of their programme.

Now in its third year, the scholarship has so far been awarded to two students. Peter Muraya has progressed in his studies in climate change adaptation, and Dennis Mugambi continues to work towards his human rights degree.

Before her untimely passing, Krystle was working as a Social Policy Specialist at Development Pathways in Kenya. She was passionate about improving the lives of the most vulnerable members of society and had a strong interest in promoting the rights of people with disabilities.

To be considered for the Krystle Kabare Scholarship, the student must:

  • Be a Kenyan citizen living with a disability
  • Have already attained an undergraduate Upper Second-Class Honours degree or above
  • Be proficient in spoken and written English
  • Have an acceptance letter to a Master’s programme at the University of Nairobi for September 2022.
