Introduction to the Albert Baker Fund 2024 

Applications are now open for the Albert Baker Fund 2024 for African Christian Scientists. The Albert Baker Fund (ABF) is a non-profit organization based in the U.S.A. that is committed to providing financial assistance to active Christian scientists who are citizens of selected countries. ABF provides post-secondary educational grants to eligible African institutions located in Benin, Burundi, Cameroon, Congo, the DRC, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania (Mwanza only), Togo, Uganda, or Zambia. The grants are awarded solely on the basis of the applicant’s academic performance and demonstrated financial need.

It is important to note that ABF offers grants only, not loans. The organisation’s aim is to alleviate the financial burden of pursuing higher education, particularly for Christian Science students in the selected countries where ABF has established a program. The grants can cover tuition fees, books, and other educational expenses. 

To be considered for the ABF educational grant, applicants must be active Christian scientists who have completed their secondary education and have been accepted into a post-secondary program at an eligible institution. The applicant must also demonstrate financial need and maintain good academic standing throughout the duration of the grant. 

ABF is committed to providing equal educational opportunities to all eligible Christian Science students in the selected countries. The organization’s mission is to empower students to pursue their academic dreams and to contribute positively to their communities.
