Desire Africa Scholarship

by Bonface Were

I am a student at Kenyatta University and I just want to inquire about the Desire Africa Scholarship. I applied for the scholarship but up to now I have not received any confirmation if I was considered or not. Could you please confirm it for me. I will be glad if you respond to my request.


It takes time for many organizations/universities to reply emails and inquiries from scholarship applicants.

Some do not reply at all owing to the big number of inquiries.

As for desire Africa, there were a number of red flags that potential applicants needed to take into account.

1. Application fee - did not sound right
2. A quick check would have revealed that the website was newly registered.


In my opinion, you lost your money.

Desire Africa, you got no idea what some of us go through. If it was a scam I pray that all the money you collected comes back to haunt you.

If you have scholarships for 10 students, award only 9 students and that meant for the 10th one keep it as money you would have collected as non refundable application fee since some applicants like me who borrowed the fee and have not been selected have got a double loss and thus forgoten my university education. If I were the president of Kenya I would set up a body that registers all scholarship organisations and applicants should first confirm from the body if the scholarship organisation is elligible before applying the scholarship. From now I shall only trust a scholarship without a reg.fee

This was a well calculated cyber crime that should be stopped at all cost.

I think we were conned by people calling themselves Desire Africa. Immediately the scholarship deadline passed, they pulled down their website and they could not be reached.

Beware of organizations requiring application fees for a scholarship. After all you are the one who needs money not them! It's a trick/scam to raise money from people in need


Why is it difficult to down load the desire africa application forms? Where is your headquarters in Nairobi?
