Kenya is an important partner country of VLIR-UOS. From 2003 to 2021 VLIR-UOS spent around € 30,4 million in cooperation with Kenya, including a long-term Institutional University Cooperation (IUC) Programme with the University of Nairobi and Moi University (MU-K, Eldoret). The IUC partnership with Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) which started in 2017 is the cornerstone of the cooperation with Kenya. In 2021, a new IUC partnership with Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology (JOOUST) is being phased in in view of full funding as of 2022.
Kenya is also one of our 29 scholarship countries.
