With the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat charged by the vision of the President, it is our objective to give opportunities to each and every Ghanaian student deserving of award for tertiary education,”

According to him, a strategic decision was taken in 2019 to digitize the scholarship application process for the 2021/2022 academic year for both the local and foreign scholarship schemes.

Mr. Agyemang continued by noting that, the main reason for going digital was to increase accessibility and ensure transparency and fairness while being able to pay tuition fees and stipend promptly to all who are on the Scholarship program.

“To this effect, scholarship processes for the 2021/2022 academic year commenced in March 2021 through our online portal and saw over 300,000 Ghanaians applying from all over the country without physically engaging the Secretariat or having to travel from the hinterlands to access our service.”

He announced that the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat has commenced payment for the first batch of online scholarship applicants who participated in the nationwide scholarship selection interviews in their respective district assemblies.

He reiterated the government’s commitment to accessible education by all and sundry.
