Psychology & Philosophy

I have been a recipient of this scholarship scheme since my second year of study and I can boldly say that your contribution has made a significant impact in my educational journey. Your support has given me peace to focus on my studies and work hard to push myself up. As a result of this scholarship fund, I was able to move from a GPA of 2.9 to 3.12. Thank you UG Scholarship Scheme for believing in me and supporting me through these years of study. I believe I will pay it forward one day.

Economics, Geography and Archaeology

To start with, without this scholarship I think my dream and plans for my future is almost off-target. Because, this year I was about to defer my course due to financial difficulties that I am facing in my life. This made me always overthink and I became a little bit frustrated in my decision making. So, glory be to Allah I checked on my student account and an amount of one thousand five hundred and twenty-four cedis was deposited into my account by the UG scholarship. Wow, this was different excitement to me and my entire family. I personally have realized that the previous scholarship made me stick with my books and studied serious by seeking improvement in my GPA of 3.4. I will keep on pushing until my target is achieved.

Doctor of Pharmacy

I write to express my sincerest gratitude to all the stakeholders and the entire staff of the student financial aid office for the privilege to be a benefactor of the UG Sponsorship scheme for the 2022/2023 academic year. This award has reduced a lot of burden on my family since my dad no longer needs to think of how to pay for the loans he took to pay for my fees. I am personally also well psyched for the academic year because of the benevolence the university has showed upon me. As Benjamin Franklin rightly said “an investment in knowledge pays the best interest”. I will therefore utilize the opportunity given to me to improve upon my studies so the investment you have made in me will not be wasted.

B.A. Economics with Statistics

Your generosity has been a bulwark to my financial constraints and has reawaken a dream I thought would not come to fruition due to my family’s difficult financial stance. It has brought back hope for my academic future. I am excited that this has brought me peaceful mind to maximizing my studies without having to constantly think of how and when my fees will be paid as done previously. As a second time awardee transitioning to my final level, level 400 has not been so emotional since the burden has been lightened, which allowed me to focus more on the most important aspect of school learning.

This scholarship will significantly alleviate the financial burden of my educational expenses and allow me to pursue my academic and career goals with renewed focus and determination.

Jeff Nana Adusei

Political Science and Study of Religions

I am currently an undergraduate student in my 2nd year of the BA degree programme. I am looking forward to pursuing a career as a social worker upon graduating from the University of Ghana, Legon. My interest in social work originates from having the desire to be able to help others who are helpless, vulnerable and heartbroken. I strongly believe that a person’s relevance and success in life, is not in his or her many possessions but rather in what he can do or give, for the good of others. Due to financial assistance, I am very near to finding fulfilment in getting to help others in need.

This scholarship has opened a door and the prospect of a brighter future will play a key role in shaping me into a successful person in the future.
