Ghana Scholarship Secretariat Gives Scholarships to Undergraduates

Each year, the Government of Ghana gives scholarships to all prospective Ghanaians who have admission to local tertiaries and they find their way to apply for it, to enable them to study the courses of their choice.

The scholarship is of two types. The first one is the Bachelor’s Degree scholarship which is only taken within the country by an undergraduate. The second type is for those who have attained their degree qualifications and will like to further their education outside the country.

The scholarship is either fully or partially funded and also depending on the course you offer. Click here to see how to apply for the postgraduate scholarship to study abroad.
