Various constituency development fund programmes have varying arrangements of financial support for students from their respective constituencies.

The criteria of the award are unclear but applicants fill a form with a space of Dean of Students to fill as a way of confirming the information given by the applicant is correct.

In most cases, the needy and deserving students are given priority when the bursaries are being allocated. Also, students whose parents or guardians are experiencing a lot of financial pressure for examples where they are funding university education for many dependents are also given a priority.

The minimum award per student varies from constituency to constituency.

The CDF bursaries are also awarded to needy students in secondary schools, especially public secondary schools.

The money allocated for CDF Bursaries in most cases ends up in pockets of a chosen cartel of the elite.
The local citizens have no say with regard to this. We need to demand for openness, if we are aiming at attaining equitable share depending on one's needs.
