At the Foundation Institute of Africa, we recognize that every youth in Kenya is entitled to quality higher education, regardless of their financial backgrounds. We therefore offer scholarships to deserving youths from poor backgrounds across the country. 800 scholarships are currently open for application.

Besides the scholarships, we pride in offering highly subsidized tuition fees for our diploma and certificate courses. While fees range between Ksh. 90,000 – Ksh. 165,000 in various public and private colleges, at FIA we charge an average of Ksh. 14,600 to enroll for a two year diploma course. Accommodation, tuition, meals, and learning materials are also offered at subsidized cost.

We also offer higher education loans to eligible students studying at our institution to ensure lack of financial resources never come in the way of completing their studies. The loan is payable upon successful completion of the course and acquiring a job.

The institution also prides in offering technical and vocational courses in line with the government’s efforts of reforming the Kenyan education sector to include more technical courses as stipulated in the vision 2030 plan. TVET courses constitute a major share of the courses we offer at FIA.

The institute is located in a serene environment in Athi River, Machakos County on the outskirts of the bubbly capital Nairobi. This location provides the perfect blend of a conducive learning space and a cosmopolitan area, making each and every student feel at home away from home.

FIA has invested in modern learning facilities;- a world-class modern library, well-equipped laboratories and modern classrooms to ensure students access the required resources for success. We also have a fully fledged sports complex to provide a social platform for our students who hail from diverse backgrounds.

We are committed to ensuring our graduates stand out in the market. We therefore focus on giving our graduates hands-on knowledge in their particular professionalism to ensure they suit the needs of potential employers. To adequately prepare students for the dynamic labor market, the institute has established meaningful links with leading organizations and industrial partners who guide the institution on practical and professional requirements which need to be built into programs.

Our diploma courses offer you a bridge to pursue degree courses in any Kenyan university upon successful completion of the course.
