Four beneficiaries of MTN Bright Scholarship have successfully graduated from the University of Cape Coast. These beneficiaries were supported by the MTN Ghana Foundation to pursue degree programs in various academic disciplines under the educational support scheme which started some three years ago.
Several Ghanaian students have since benefited from the package; which covers their tuition, accommodation, books, and other stipends, ever since it was instituted.
Mr. Samuel Appiah [B.Com Finance], Elvis Attah [B.Sc Biochemistry], Francis Chempa [B.Sc Information Technology], and Seth Kofi Pobee [B.Sc Physician Assistant Studies], all beneficiaries of MTN Bright Scholarship graduated, today, from the University of Cape Coast with First-Class Honors.
The testimonies as shared by these students were that; “they couldn’t have made it out successfully at the university if MTN Ghana Foundation’s support was not awarded.”
“We are eternally grateful to MTN Ghana, and we pray they continue this way to support more brilliant but needy students achieve their educational goals,” Seth Kofi Pobee said on their behalf.
This year at the close of the call for the next batch of beneficiaries, a total of 1,180 students had applied. This population of applicants has been shortlisted to 180, and would be interviewed for a final selection.
By far, MTN Bright Scholarship has produced over 1,000 top quality graduates in the country in areas of Administration, Agriculture, Education, Biological Sciences, Commerce and Finance, ICT, Laboratory Technology, Law, Medicine, Nursing and Midwifery, and among others. This has contributed to the human capital development of the country.
