At the Stephen Akintayo Foundation, our mission is to influence Africa’s future through education. We firmly believe that education is the catalyst for progress, empowering individuals to shape their destinies and contribute to our continent’s advancement.

Through this grant, we are committed to nurturing aspiring minds, fostering innovation, and paving the way for a brighter tomorrow.

However, in 2024, we are expanding our impact as the grant reaches 9 countries across 4 continents, benefiting Africans within and beyond the continent. Applications are now open.
