During the launch of the proposed Marsabit University task force,the Marsabit County Government also assented to the Scholarship Fund Bill.
The scholarship fund which targets medicine related courses and students who seek to pursue careers in Nursing, Pharmarcy, Clinical medicine, Surgery and similar health related courses, was informed by the shortage in qualified personnell in the health sector.
“While unemployment is quite high in Marsabit one of the challenges has been, many people going for irrelevant courses. The health sector needs many personnell at all levels”, asserted Amb. Ukur in the launch.
The scholarship Fund Bill has been in the County Assembly for almost two years. Following the assention, the scholarship funds which will majorly permit medical related courses can finally be disbursed in the coming month.
