ABOUT THE VC RUN

WHY DO WE RUN?
Strathmore University is committed to providing high-quality education to bright but needy students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Over the last decade, the University has invested more than Kshs 1 Billion in Scholarship Programs, and currently, with additional funding from industry partners and individuals, more than 20% of our undergraduate students receive Scholarships.
Each year, Strathmore University Foundation organizes the VC Run Event in order to raise funds for the Scholarship Fund. The Fund was established to provide Financial Aid to students. Since its inception in 2020, it has helped six students in paying off outstanding fee balances, thus allowing them to graduate. Our goal is to have as many students as possible benefit from the funds raised and provide full scholarships to degree programs in Strathmore University.
We look forward to having your support in the coming year through your registration and participation in the event.
