AKPA Scholarship

The Dr. Njeri Karangu Memorial Scholarship

Application will be accepted from March 15th to October 15th 2013

Winner will be announced on Oct 19th, 2013 50th Jubilee Dinner ATLANTA

Since 2002, AKPA has awarded the AKPA Student of the Year award to a top Kenyan student from the greater Atlanta area. In addition to receiving the award, the selected student also receives a scholarship from AKPA. Past recipients have been awarded scholarships of up to $1,000.

The scholarship was named in honor of Dr. Njeri Karangu who was AKPA's first Education Committee Chairman, a teacher and an advocate for education and students, particularly for Kenyan students living in the Atlanta area. In recognition of Dr. Karangu's passion for education and her pioneering leadership of AKPA's Education Committee, in 2004, AKPA members voted to change the name of the scholarship to the Njeri Karangu Memorial Scholarship.
