is once again inviting you to apply for a diploma or certificate course of your choice in National Polytechnics, Technical Training Institutes or other Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions.

If successful, you will be sponsored by the Government as follows:

  1. The total fees will not be more than Ksh 56,420 per student per year.

A student must apply for placement through KUCCPS to benefit from the Government fee subsidy.
