Some 33 scholars in the 2016 class of the Equity Leaders Programme (ELP) have received admissions to study in top global universities.

The number is expected to more than double when the regular admissions are released in March.

The number, from the early decisions application round, brings the total number of ELP scholars studying or alumni in global universities to 362.

Of the 33 admissions, 18 are alumni of the Wings to Fly programme, bringing the total number of Wings to Fly scholars who have transited to global universities to 32.

“We are very proud of our ELP scholars who are increasingly demonstrating capability to compete for the most competitive positions in some of the top universities globally,” said Equity Bank Chief Executive Officer Dr James Mwangi.
