The Maranatha scholarship aims at helping girls who are willing to pursue careers in science subjects. Fields of science, technology, as well as mathematics are increasingly dominated by males in Malawi but girls need to start believing the fact that once a woman makes her way to the top, more women will make their way to the top. One woman at a time.
Financial support towards tuition fees, a once off start up allowance for writing materials, and school uniform for 2 girls will be provided for the whole school year. This will be renewed for each secondary school year based on satsifactory academic performance. The scholarship is worth MK100,000.00/student/year.
