Zanzibar, Chukwani, (SUN): The Kuwait based Direct Aid will offer 50 full scholarships for qualified and deserving students who join Abdulrahman Al- Sumait University and Muslim University of Morogoro (MUM) degree programmes this academic year.

They will be equally shared between the two universities which will facilitate its implementation.
The Sumait University has already set up Students Support Programme (SUSSP) in the categories of Full Scholarship, Partial Scholarship and Interest free Study Loan aimed at providing financial aid for its students to ensure that they focus on their studies and eventually utilize their competence for the betterment of the community.
To be eligible for SUSSP, the students must be Tanzanians, have attained two Principal passes with a total point of 4.0 at ‘A’ level or a GPA of 3.0 at Ordinary Diploma Level and must have secured admission at Sumait University.
