The Foundation

The Muljibhai Madhvani Foundation is a Charitable Trust. One of the Foundation's primary objectives is to maintain and promote scientific and technical education among the people of Uganda.

It is in pursuit of this objective that the Board of Trustees of the Foundation set up a Scholarship Committee and instituted a scholarship programme in 2003 to enhance the building of capacity among Ugandans in scientific and technical education.

The scholarship programme is aimed at benefiting Ugandans pursuing either undergraduate or graduate studies at University level in Uganda.

The scholarship programme has been in operation since 2003/04 academic year.

What does the scholarship cover?

The scholarship covers tuition fees only from second year to completion for undergraduates; and, for the entire programme of study for graduate students from the time of application/award.

Nature of the scholarship

  • The scholarship shall be extended as a grant payable directly to the University/Institution on behalf of the beneficiaries.
  • Renewal of funding shall be subject to receiving satisfactory progress reports from the beneficiaries' Faculty/Institute/School.
  • Retakes in more then 1 subject would entail withdrawal of Scholarship and shall not be funded by the Trust.
  • On completion of studies, it is expected that the awardees will, for the benefit of future scholars, make voluntary donations/contributions to the Foundation.
