The BEL Scholarship Program was launched in May 2015 with the main aim of providing financial assistance to talented students from the Project Affected Communities who would have successfully completed Advanced Level of Education with a focus on engineering, but otherwise not be able to join Institutions of higher learning due to financial constraints. The BEL scholarship was initiated as part of BEL’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme. This is the second year of the scholarship awards.
The process of identifying the potential BEL scholarship beneficiaries for academic year 2017/2018 started in Mid-July 2017. There were eight (8) applicants including three females and five males. Only one applicant resides in the East Bank (Budondo Sub-County) whereas the rest of the applicants are residents on the West Bank (Wakisi Sub-County).
