The MasterCard Scholarship Foundation in collaboration with Ashesi University College is awarding significant full and free scholarships to qualified undergraduate students who need such financial assistance to pursue bachelor’s degree.
Please note that half of the scholarships funded by the Master Card Foundation will be awarded to international students. This scholarship is a full scholarship and shall cover the full cost of tuition, but also includes housing in Ashesi residence halls, meals on campus, a free laptop, spending money and annual trips home for international students after the second year.
Scholarships will be awarded to local and non-Ghanaian students from low income and middle income families. Families who are unable to afford the full fees of the university should complete a financial aid application form and return it within the stipulated deadline with their admissions application. The Scholarship Committee will determine the amount of your award on the basis of demonstrated need and the strength of your application.
You will be required to submit a letter explaining why you need a scholarship. Families will be required to submit bank statements, pay slips and any other relevant financial documents . The more financial information you provide to support your inability to pay the full fees, the easier it will be to process your request and award you a full scholarship.
Students who receive scholarships typically achieve mostly A’s and B’s on their transcripts and national exam results
The decision to make an offer of admission is done independently of scholarship applications and decisions. The Admissions Office first determines which applicants are most qualified to attend Ashesi. A Scholarship Committee then makes an independent decision regarding scholarship awards.
The admissions office will give you a date you can expect to hear back from Ashesi, based on the date you applied. You will receive both your admission and scholarship decision at the same time.
