Hon Anthony Butele, Chairman Madhvani Foundation Scholarship committee said, “We have reviewed each of the 1,400 applications thoroughly and narrowed it down to 247 undergraduate students and 43 Postgraduate students from whom we would like to get more information before a final decision is made by the committee.”
“These individuals have put forwards some very compelling cases for financial support and the interviews will give us an opportunity to assess the situations more closely and dig deeper into them,” adds Butele.
He noted that Madhvani Foundation is an equal opportunity sponsor and as such applicants should not base their expectations on any demographics or past statistical outcomes.
“We endeavor to be fair to all the applicants therefore we encourage them to prepare adequately ahead of the interviews and present all their original supporting documents submitted with the application, identity card, proof of parents’ occupation and all receipts of fees at the University during their interviews,” he said.
He emphasized that transparency is a virtue the company holds with the utmost regard and as such any form of canvassing before or after the interviews will lead to the immediate disqualification of a student’s application.
The shortlisted candidates will appear before the Scholarship committee in person at Makerere University, Academic Registrar’s office (Senate building), Level VI, Board Room, Kampala between 8:30am to 5:30pm.
The Madhvani Foundation was established in 1962 on the eve of Uganda independence to honour the vision of the founder of the Madhvani group the late Muljibhai Prabhudas Madhvani.
In 2003 the Board set up the University education trust with the principal objective being the promotion of scientific and technical education for the betterment of the people of Uganda.
Since 2003 the trust has educated over 1,300 University students and provided scholarships worth over 3 Billion Uganda Shillings.
