Acasta Partners Further Education Scholarship

18 Nov 2022

Acasta Partners introduced the inaugural recipient of the Acasta Partners’ Further Education Scholarship in partnership with the Eastside Young Leaders’ Academy (EYLA). Matthew Kosgei is from The London Borough of Tower Hamlets and was a student at EYLA in Newham.

EYLA’s aim is to create leaders of character and purpose for tomorrow’s world through leadership workshops and seminars, drawn from those most in need in grassroots communities.

EYLA views education as a launchpad for this mission and as a gateway to belonging to an influential peer group who will individually and collectively exert positive influence in society.

Matthew was selected as the first recipient of the Acasta Partners’ Scholarship after a competitive interview process. He will be studying Electrical, Electronic & Mechatronic Engineering at The University of Manchester. The scholarship comprises an award of £10,000 per year toward tuition, course materials, and other expenses while at university. It also includes the option for a paid summer internship with Acasta Partners, alongside ongoing mentorship. Due to the strength of the applications, the awarding committee decided to make two further awards of £5,000 per year to two additional recipients, Victor Adedeji and Godfred Adomako.
