Ghana Launches Online Scholarship Application System

Scholarship Application

Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has launched the Scholarship Secretariat’s Online Scholarship Application and Administration System,

Beginning April 1, 2020, in just four easy steps, any applicant can apply from the comfort of their homes, take an aptitude test and be interviewed in their own districts without coming to Accra as was the case in the past.

The launch of the online portal is in line with President Akufo-Addo’s vision to digitize and formalize government service delivery processes, help to eliminate the inconveniences that applicants experience seeking government sponsorships and also help the Secretariat in proper and efficient administration of scholarships in the country. 

According to Dr Bawumia, the digitization of scholarship processes has come at the appropriate time, when the world is faced with the COVID-19 pandemic which has temporarily shut down almost all social institutions, especially the education sector.

“Today, we can access many services while sitting in the comfort of our homes, without the human interface which could lead to the spread of the virus.

For the 2020/2021 academic year, the Scholarships Secretariat and GETFund has made a provision for ¢80,000,000 to students in local tertiary institutions. The number of beneficiaries is expected to increase to about 70,000.
