Privately Sponsored Students Programme (PSSP) was launched in October 1998. It is an educational service by Moi University through which any Kenyan is able to pursue university education at an affordable rate compared to the cost of similar studies abroad. The programme aims at providing opportunities to secondary school graduates who obtain a minimum grade of C+ at the Kenya Certificate of Secondary School (KCSE) but are not admitted by the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Services because of the limited capacities into public universities. The attendant effect of this is that only about 10, 000 students are offered admission while many other members of the public who would like to further their education have been given an opportunity through this programme. The programme provides many opportunities to thousands of Kenyans to study locally thus enabling the country save a lot of money in foreign currency to foreign universities.
