William and Nancy Budd Scholarship Fund
Supporting Education in Kenya
October 2013 Update: Annual Reports for 2009-2011 are available here.
Welcome to the William and Nancy Budd Scholarship Fund web site. The William and Nancy Budd Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for secondary school and university students in Kenya. It finances full tuition for students in Forms 2, 3, and 4 (grades 10-12) and a significant portion of university-level tuition. In 2007, the average tuition cost of public secondary school is about $370 per year, and the average university tuition cost for a Budd Scholar is $555 per year.
Budd Scholars come from every province in Kenya. Many are orphans. Often they are from poor rural areas. Some, particularly girls, were discouraged from attending school.
But the Budd Scholars also share a common vision - education will free them from poverty and ignorance. They have courage, determination, and commitment. Despite their struggles, they remain hopeful. They dream of becoming engineers, doctors and pilots.
