Hell Ivisa, I'm glad to meet you at this juncture. I'm a South Sudanese national, currently resident in Kampala, Uganda. I'm enrolled in college studying diploma in business administration at Makerere Institute for Social Development (website www.misd.ac.ug) or misd14@gmail.com/yahoo.com. I'm also given a degree admission from ISBAT University in Kampala to study Bachelor of Information Technology. I would like to know if I am qualified to apply to this Ivisa scholarships program because I have tried so much scholarships programs but it look like they're unusual and not reality programs. However, I hope this would work!
