Every student receives significant scholarship as their tuition covers 25% of the cost of a Davis College and Akilah education. In addition, students can apply for an innovative income-share-agreement to cover their tuition costs.
Yet, the affordable cost of a Davis College or Akilah education still remains out of reach for many students.
Your investment in scholarships and financial aid will allow more students to become global citizens, and lead transformational change in their communities and countries.
A full scholarship to Akilah is $3,000 per year. Your gift provides the life-changing opportunity for a young woman to attend Akilah. You will be matched with your Scholar and receive regular updates.

Akilah entrepreneurs ideate, create, pitch, and commercialize their business ideas with coaching from faculty, advisors, and alumni. Students compete for startup funding and partnership opportunities. Alumnae have launched businesses in hydroponics, alternative energy, toy manufacturing, fashion, mobile applications, and more.

The Akilah Leaders Program, which awards full tuition and living stipends to young women from East Africa who display exceptional academic achievement and financial need.
Akilah Environment Scholars: Scholarships provided to students with a demonstrated passion for using their skills and education to make meaningful contributions to environmental protection and climate action in East Africa.
