The Madhvani Foundation scholarship scheme is open to all Ugandans who meet the criteria set out by the board. The selection of the recipients is based on a number of factors, including the academic performance of the candidates in the first year (CGPA) for undergraduates, the class of degree held for graduate students, the age and character of the candidate, the financial status of the student or their parents/guardians and the nature of academic references provided.
All candidates for the scholarships are put through a rigorous but transparent selection process designed to ensure that they are truly deserving of the award. After all the initial applications are received, the Foundation’s education selection subcommittee sits and shortlists candidates who have met all the criteria and appear to have a genuine need for assistance, these candidates are then given appointments for face to face interviews. What the panel looks for in these interviews is to get to know the candidate better and ensure that the person has been truthful with the information presented. The committee then sits once again and drafts a final list of awardees based on the results of the interviews and the funds available.
The Muljibhai Madhvani foundation is a charitable trust that was set up in 1962 on the eve of Uganda’s Independence to honour the vision of the late Muljibhai Prabhudas Madhvani (14th May 1894 – 11th July 1958.).
Muljibhai Prabhudas Madhvani arrived in Jinja in 1912 aged 18. Due to his extraordinary vision, personality and ability he was able to take a humble trading concern and create a business that would later account for 10% of Uganda’s GDP.
