Academic Awards Programme

Each year, The KEECT funds approximately 110 educational awards totaling $600,000, predominantly for women.  Funding varies for each award from $2,000 up to $18,000 to assist with study expenses, fees or retraining.

The award selection process is overseen by an experienced Awards Committee and the approach is both academic and holistic, considering things such as financial need, whether the applicant is first in family to study, or any challenges they might have.
