Applying for Scholarship at Ashesi

Generally, these scholarships will be awarded to students from low poor families. Families that cannot afford the stipulated fees will be required to complete a financial aid application form and return within the deadline with their admissions application to the admissions team. The Scholarship panel will determine the amount of your award on the basis of demonstrated need and the quality of your application.

You will be required to submit a letter stating why you need a scholarship.Students will also be asked to submit their families their bank statements, pay slips and any other relevant financial documents. The admissions committee will need as much information as possible to support your inability to pay the tuition fees, the better it will be for the panel to process scholarship request.

Students who generally are awarded the scholarships generally 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.
