The government of Uganda obtained a loan of USD 28million (approximately sh106.5b) from the World Bank in 2014, part of which would be used to bankroll the scholarships. The courses will be taken at Uganda Technical College, Kicwamba and Uganda Petroleum Institute, Kigumba (UPIK).

Kisembo says the scheme is targeting students who completed senior four with an Ordinary Level certificate indicating exceptional performance in science subjects.  All beneficiaries must be Ugandans and residents in the listed districts.
