Scholarships are up for grabs for rugby players at the prestigious University of Saint Andrew's in Scotland, according to Kenya Rugby Union.
While announcing the scholarships, KRU said those eligible for the opportunity are players who have played for the national team at any level.
However, KRU noted that the players should have completed a degree at any university and be interested in pursuing a post-graduate degree at Saint Andrew's and play for the University’s rugby side.
“The university will partly sponsor the course but depending on the calibre of the player, they may be willing to fund the entire cost of the course for one year,” KRU said in a statement.
“Interested candidates should send their expression of interest to [email protected] clearly stating the course they intend to pursue at the University of Saint Andrews, as well as willingness to bear the expected costs of the program,” the statement further states. Available courses for scholarships can be viewed on their website
