SRC Yi Bi Boa Scholarship Scheme

2023-2024 SRC Yi Bi Boa Scholarship Scheme


The SRC Yi Bi Boa Scholarship is a scheme which seeks to provide financial support to needy and brilliant undergraduate students of the University of Ghana.

In the university, many students face a lot of financial challenges so the SRC made it a core mandate to ensure that every student gets easy access to education regardless of his or her financial status. It is for this reason that the SRC collaborates with the Students Financial Aid Office (SFAO) every year to enroll students onto the SRC Yi Bi Boa Scholarship Scheme. The SRC Yi Boa scholarship scheme is for needy University of Ghana students with progressive academic performance.
