The Krystle Kabare Scholarship – which was launched in 2019 in memory of Krystle Kabare, a much-beloved staff member of Development Pathways – contributes to the educational development of a Kenyan with a disability. The scholarship will be awarded to a prospective Master’s degree student, within the fields of: Public Health, Anthropology, Economics, Sociology, Social Statistics or other relevant fields.
Last year, Peter Muraya was awarded the Krystle Kabare scholarship and has been pursuing a Master’s in Climate Change Adaptation at the University of Nairobi. One of Peter’s career goals is to work in social policy and to help tackle the disproportionate impacts that persons with disabilities are experiencing due to climate change. Peter explained that without the scholarship, “My ambition to further my education after graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies and Community Development would have monumentally and indefinitely paused.”
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.
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 2021.
