UPDF educational scholarship
Wassajja Andrew Mauba made this Access to Information request to Ministry of Defence / Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF)
Dear Ministry of Defense / Uganda Peoples Defense Forces (UPDF),
Greetings. My names are Andrew Wassajja Mauba son to Rt. Col. Jackson Mauba RO0365. I would like to express my interest for further education which are Masters in Project/ Program Management in Vienna Austria. Apparently, all I need from the UPDF is a scholarship for this education program and I will personally together with the aid of my brothers facilitate my stay in Austria in terms of Shelter and accommodation. Being the very last born of my father, he has always wished for nothing but the best for me to reserve his legacy and also serve this country and country-men following his footsteps. I hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.
Andrew Wassajja Mauba
Dear Ndugu Andrew, thank you for contacting the ministry and indeed UPDF.
We are pleased to hear that you want to preserve the legacy of our fallen
comrade. However, UPDF doesn't have a scholarship scheme for those inside
and outside it. However, there is an education committee headed by the
chief political commissar which decides on supporting soldiers who would
like to further their education. This is also based on those areas that
the institution is interested.
