Description 
The OVC Scholarship Program is a five year Global Development Alliance Partnership between USAID, Equity Bank (EBL) and Equity Foundation (EGF), and their other partners to support Kenyan OVC scholars to access secondary, tertiary and university education. The activity will offer comprehensive scholarships, leadership and mentoring to 3,566 beneficiaries of the Program for the period 2011-2017. The scholarship component will provide a comprehensive package covering basic scholars’ needs whilst at their academic institutions (tuition, room, board, books, supplies, uniform, cost of practicum, stipend, etc). It will then complement this with leadership development and mentoring which EGF currently provides to scholars under its Wings To Fly Program.
