The day after our meeting with Ashesi delegation, we invited i Lab users to attend and informational session explaining the procedure and necessary forms to apply for the scholarship opportunity.
Last month, we received a delegation from Ghana’s Ashesi University.
In addition to visiting i Lab and getting a sense of our operations, the delegation came to offer scholarship opportunities to qualified Liberian students.
Ashesi offers a four-year bachelor’s program grounded in the liberal arts core curriculum.
Degrees offered include: Ashesi University is here in Liberia to award significant financial support to qualified students who need such assistance.
The scholarship opportunity Ashesi University has over $3,000,000 from the Master Card Foundation to give financial assistance to applicants who otherwise could not afford the college’s tuition.
Nearly 40% of their student body receives scholarships from the University.
Students accepted will be eligible for full or partial scholarship support to cover their tuition fees, textbooks, housing, and meals.
During our meeting, we explained about the University, the levels of scholarships awarded, procedure for applying for the scholarship, and a virtual tour of the campus through the university’s website, and at the end of our meeting, we encouraged all interested candidates to attend the official Ashesi University Scholarship launch which was to be held the next day at the Joseph Jenkins Roberts United Methodist School in Monrovia.
Our team attended the launch and found that nearly 50% to 60% percent of the people at the launch had attended the scholarship awareness meeting at i Lab Liberia the day before.
