The Karimjee Jivanjee Foundation (KJF) is the primary vehicle for the Karimjee family’s charitable work. The mission of the Foundation is to invest in education as a means to enhance the economic development of Tanzania.

The Karimjee Jivanjee Foundation is awarding scholarships to Tanzanian citizens to pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees in Tanzania. Scholarships will be granted to students who have achieved good academic results in their previous studies and who do not have the means to pay for their higher education. Priority will be given to female applicants and to people with disabilities. The field of study must demonstrate a socio-economic benefit to Tanzania.
