Here is our story
The Scholarship Academy Africa idea was conceptualized in 2013 by Douglas Owino following his personal education journey.
Douglas grew up from a humble background in Kenya and his main challenge was paying his tuition fees. Douglas received his first scholarship at the age of 10 years. Upon completion of primary level education in 2002, he had to negotiate for an opportunity to complete his high school education after dropping and spending 1 year out of school. He received a scholarship. His determination did not end there. He performed very well in high school national exams of 2007 and awarded United States International University scholarship in 2008.
In 2012, Douglas was recognized among top 60 British Council Global Changemakers (Belgium). The same year he won Korean Government Scholarship for his Master’s degree to study at SolBridge International School of Business (South Korea). In 2014, he was listed among top 30 Most Inspirational Young People in Africa by Youth Village (South Africa). In 2015, he was awarded Merit-Based Global Woosong Educational Foundation Scholarship (South Korea) and the same year he was awarded and inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma International Honors Society (USA).
