The Cardinal Otunga fundraising last year realized close to a million shillings which was allocated to needy students in the University.

The fundraiser which was held in September last year realized Kshs. 904,310 (inclusive of pledges) with a further donation of 280,000 shs coming later.

By November 13, 2018, the Cardinal Otunga Scholarship Award Committee convened by the Dean of Students awarded scholarships total of Kshs. 642,000/- (due to pending pledges). The Scholarship was awarded to 25 students approved by VC’s Office.

The gesture touched one of our staff members who added a sum of Kshs. 90,000/- to benefit two students who were ready considered because of their high fee balance that threatened their siting of December, 2018 examinations.

The Cardinal Otunga Secretariat received a further specific donation of Kshs. 190,000/- for other two needy students bringing our total cash Scholarship award to Kshs. 922,000/-.

The Cardinal Otunga Memorial lecture and Scholarship fundraising is one of the University’s major Annual events since 2005. Last year the University held the 15th Cardinal Otunga Memorial Mass, Annual Lecture and Scholarship Fundraising on September 7, 2018 guided by theme “Restoring Human Dignity in Perspective of the SoG Maurice Cardinal Otunga”.

The Memorial Mass main celebrant was Rt. Rev. Paul Kariuki, Bishop Catholic Diocese of Embu and Memorial Lecture was delivered by Rev. Fr. Charles Kinyua, Director Radio Waumini. The Guest fundraiser for the Cardinal Otunga Scholarship was Mr. Andrew Wanga, a CUEA Alumni.

Speaking at the official awarding ceremony, on February 21, 2019 the Acting Chair of the Scholarship Committee, Mr. Peter Mbevo thanked Dr. Johnson Mavole, a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences for his desire to better the University efforts to support needy students which yielded the sum of Kshs 280,000/-.

Mr. Mbevo urged those intending to make better the Cardinal Otunga Scholarship course, to join hands for ‘true justice in our society as we invest for our future generations’.

He added that the Cardinal Otunga Scholarship planning committee still appeals for support and interventions to our ‘reach-out efforts in reliving this good legacy left by one of our founding fathers, the Servant of God, Maurice Michael Cardinal Otunga’.

This year, the Mass, Memorial Lecture and Fundraising event is scheduled for September 20, 2019. We appeal to Countries in AMECEA region, our Faculties, Centre, Institutes and all functional areas to plan and participate generously to make this program a success.

We thank you for your generous contribution and continued commitment to making the Cardinal Otunga Scholarship a reality in CUEA.
