The Ghana Scholarship Secretariat has granted Thomas Amoaning of Adeiso Presby SHS a full scholarship to study at a university in the United Kingdom.
Thomas scored 8As in the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
His brilliant performance impressed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who directed the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat to grant him a full scholarship for tertiary studies.
The Ghana Scholarship Secretariat subsequently visited Thomas’ parents to discuss their needs in detail.
After meeting with his parents, the scholarship secretariat decided to grant Thomas Amoaning a full scholarship to study at a university of his preference in the United Kingdom.
“Based on recommendations of the Scholarships Review Committee, the student has been granted a full scholarship for studies at a University in the United Kingdom. The recommendation is consequent to the student’s preference and justification of academic excellence during the review process by the Scholarships Review Committee,” a statement signed by the Registrar of scholarships, Kingsley Agyemang, read.
“The Head of Education at the Ghana High Commission in the United Kingdom has been directed to immediately initiate processes aimed at securing admission into an institution in the United Kingdom for the student,” the statement added.
The Ghana Scholarship Secretariat also revealed that “the award package will entail full tuition, monthly stipends, return air tickets, accommodation, health insurance and any other benefits given to foreign scholarship beneficiaries.”
