What are the qualified universities and colleges?


Who qualifies for a PASS Scholarship?


The scholarship is for both entering and continuing students. Entering students have to provide high school test scores. Continuing students have to report their transcripts, which show an overall GPA of 2.8 (on 4.0 scale) or higher for continuing students (this must be maintained throughout the scholarship program).

PASS is need-and merit-based. This means that candidates who meet all academic requirements but are economically underprivileged to pay for their education will be prioritized. Since girls are generally underserved in South Sudan, they will also be given priority. Specific requirements for admission include:

  • Evidence of admission/application to an undergraduate program at an accredited institution in South Sudan
  • A score of 75% or higher on high school national exit examination (for entering students only)
  • Certified high school certificate or report slip that must be obtained for a small fee from the Ministry of Education in Juba
  • Evidence of family’s socioeconomic instability
  • If you are currently in college then you must provide a photo of your most recent college transcript
