Oxford and Cambridge Society of Kenya
This year, 2016, we mark the 90th Anniversary of the founding of the Society.
In the early evening of Saturday 27 March 1926, 19 men gathered at the Nairobi club to form the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Kenya. They established a formal framework to channel the social and charitable activities of the Society and later that year, under the guidance of Edward Brandis Denham, the idea of a Scholarship Scheme was conceived.
The Society has come a long way since, while the Scholarship Scheme remains our primary objective, its purpose has transitioned from providing partial undergraduate assistance to two fully funded post-graduate scholarships, one at either university.
You can read about the history of the Society and the current committee, past masters and check the upcoming social events for 2016 in the inaugural newsletter below.
We look foward to celebrating the 90th Anniversary through out the coming year and, of course, at the annual flagship event the Society's May Ball. The May Ball has, over the years, become a key event in the Nairobi social calendar!
