Caroline Esinam Adzogble has welcomed the first Ghanaian-based University to her Caroline Excellence Awards.
Webster University Ghana, one of the nation’s top universities has just been announced as the first and only Ghanaian based university to join the Caroline Excellence Awards scheme for the 2018/19 phase.
Webster is an American University with a campus branch in Ghana and joins the likes of The American University of Malta, Brunel University, National College of Ireland, Middlesex University and the University of Nicosia.
This brings to 120 the total number of students to receive the Scholarship under the Excellence Awards.
The Caroline Excellence Awards, according to a press statement, is committed to awarding $1 million worth of partial and full scholarships to 100 brilliant but needy African students each year.
The Awards scheme is an initiative of Ms Caroline Esinam Adzogble under her Mercy Heart Foundation.
The Caroline Excellence Awards will be awarded to meritorious students in Africa who have demonstrated a strong academic track record but have no financial backing to further their education at tertiary level.
Scholarships can be redeemed for Spring, Summer and Fall enrollment seasons each year and are open to final year Senior High School students and high school graduates only.
Although students from all African countries can apply, priority will be given to Students based in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Senegal and Togo.
Applications are open from now till December 20th, and can only be submitted through the “Admission in 30minutes” App available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store or through the website at https://admissionin30minutes.com/caroline-excellence-awards
Winners will be announced on January 13, 2019, and Caroline will embark on a tour commencing on January 21, 2019, to award all 100 recipients in their various countries. However early decisions will be made and winners announced for entries available for the spring opening.
“I am extremely excited to have Webster join our distinguished list of Partners who are committed to seeing an equitable distribution of quality education across the continent. The last one week has seen over 2000 applicants and that really excites us. We strongly believe that the addition of Webster will go a long way to prove our dedication to our cause and our believe in institutions on the continent as well. I am still on the quest to uplift education in Africa,” an excited Caroline remarked.
