a) in full upon registration,

There are various scholarships available for top and needy students, who have scored an average “A” in the KCSE.

SLS has also identified possible sources of funding for students seeking resources to finance their undergraduate education. The sources can help pay for tuition and fees, books and supplies, and living expenses. Since SLS has limited resources to provide scholarships to the many students who deserve, it tries to assist students get alternative sources of resources to finance their education. Our ideal is that no deserving student should fail to get a place in SLS owing to lack of financial means.
