Madhvani Foundation has today announced that it has received scholarship applications in excess of 1,400 this academic year from students in various universities across the country that require financial assistance to complete their education. This year’s applications will be examined under the new leadership of Hon Anthony Butele who takes over from Hon Henry Kyemba as the Chairman of the Madhvani Foundation Scholarship committee.
Commenting on his appointment, Hon Anthony Butele said, “I am honoured to be entrusted with such a pivotal role in an organization that is doing so much to shape the socio-economic landscape of the country through supporting the growth and development of a competent and skilled talented human resource pool. We will continue to dedicate our time and resources to ensuring that students with the highest potential but without adequate financial backing receive some much needed support through a transparent selection process.”
Speaking about the applications he said, “It is students like these that give Madhvani Foundation a sense of purpose to continue dedicating large amounts of money from year to year in order to support their education. They are all brilliant students and all they need is someone to give them a little push so they can realize their career dreams. The applications will be scrutinized carefully and any form of fraud or canvassing will not be tolerated and will result in the disqualification of an applicant’s entry. We hope that this year even more students will benefit from the opportunity offered by the Foundation. Applicants will be notified of any progress in the application process through our website and successful candidates will be contacted for personal interviews in July.”
He concluded by advising all candidates to always remain hopeful and reassured them that through its over 10 years of support, the scheme has maintained its standards of transparency as well as a fair selection committee and this will continue.
