- Must have passed KCPE and been admitted to a government secondary school.
- Must attain a minimum of 375 points for boys and 350 points for girls in their KCPE exam.
- The parent/guardian must satisfy the Edumed management through an interview that they are needy after completing an application form that is also certified by the Head Teacher, Chief and Minister of religion.
