Strathmore University offers Police Officers Undergraduate Scholarships
Strathmore University will offer 12 scholarships annually to the National Police Service (NPS) officers to pursue undergraduate courses at the institution. The Universitys Vice Chancellor Prof John Odhiambo and Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet Kipchirchir have signed a memorandum of understanding between the university and the National Police Service.
Prof Odhiambo said the officers who will undertake the four-year undergraduate course will undergo a competitive and rigorous selection process as per the universitys regulations.
He said the first batch of the 12 officers will undergo the selection process next week and that six of the successful officers will begin their classes in July while the other six will start in September this year.
Prof Odhiambo said eligible candidates should be aged between 26 and 32 years and that all their fees will be paid fully by the university. Mr Boinnet thanked the University for the gesture which, he said, will go a long way in enhancing service delivery.
Mr Boinnet, who was accompanied by his two deputies Grace Kaindi (Kenya Police), Samuel Arachi (Administration Police) and DCI Ndegwa Muhoro, among others, said the NPS is committed to facilitating professional improvement of its officers.
He said the ultimate objective is to ensure delivery of quality people-centred service for the 21st century and beyond.
