About The Program

The TAIK Scholars Program selects the best high schoolers in STEM fields in Africa, supports them--financially and beyond--through their applications to college and universities around the world, and mentors them throughout their undergraduate studies. The goal of the program is to nurture a growing supportive network of future doers and leaders of the continent.

The TAIK Scholars Program focuses on first-year university admissions--it selects students in their last year of high school to assist them in their application process for admission into a top university.

The application deadline for the first edition is October 15, 2022 at 11:59 PM UTC.
