The Advancement Office in partnership with Research Services Office identifies possible sources of funding for University's staff and students seeking resources to finance their undergraduate and post-graduate education.
The sources can help pay for tuition and fees, books and supplies, and living expenses. It provides access to higher education by offering a way to meet the costs, and it allows students to persist in completing their educational objectives.
Since the university has limited resources to provide scholarships to the many students who deserve, it aims at assisting students get alternative sources of resources to finance their post-secondary education.
The websites in the link below relate to various sources of financial aid. The Advancement and Research Services Offices do not control the content or take responsibility for the content of these pages. However, they have looked at these sites and have found helpful information on a variety of topics including free scholarship fellowships and grants, to name a few.
Our ideal is that no deserving student should fail to get a place in the University owing to lack of financial means; the University has, therefore, over the years sought the assistance of private and public institutions, as well as individuals, to contribute to the bursary scheme.
As a consequence, the University runs a comprehensive bursary scheme for needy students. A sizeable proportion of students have been able to benefit from it.

In March 1966, the first intake of 25 Accountancy students joined the sixth form students, and began preparing for the examinations of the UK-based Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
These first Accountancy students were sponsored by Shell East Africa, British American Tobacco Kenya and the East African Breweries.
In October 1982, the College began evening courses in Accountancy after normal working hours, with 60 students sponsored by various companies.
In 1986, in response to a request by the Trustees, the government of Kenya donated 5 acres (20,000 m2) of land on Ole Sangale Road, Madaraka Estate.
The European Union (EU) and the Italian government agreed to back the Madaraka Campus project. The donors wanted to support a co-educational College that would offer courses in Management and Accountancy.
Kianda College, an undertaking of Kianda Foundation, which was planning new developments at the time, agreed to run their professional courses in the new Madaraka campus.
Construction of the new campus commenced in September 1989. Meanwhile, in January 1991, the Information Technology Centre was started in the Lavington Campus to run computer courses leading to the Institute for the Management of Information Systems (formerly Institute of Data Processing Management) Diploma and Higher Diploma.
In January 1992 a Distance Learning Centre was opened to offer correspondence courses in Accountancy to students who are unable to attend lectures.
In January 1993, Strathmore College merged with Kianda College and moved to Ole Sangale Road, Madaraka Estate.
In August 2002, the Commission of Higher Education awarded Strathmore a Letter of Interim Authority to operate as a University with a Faculty of Commerce and a Faculty of Information Technology.
In 2008, Strathmore was awarded a charter to become a fully fledged university.
It also has since established a Business School, with academic linkage to various top Business Schools, including IESE and Harvard Business School.
