The Akuapem Education Trust (AET) has announced the Scholarship beneficiaries and Fellows for the 2021/2022 applications round.
The AET was launched in 2019 and is anchored on the idea that society’s primary responsibility should always bend towards providing equal opportunities for its members.
The Trust offers scholarships to young people, develops school infrastructure, and operates a mentorship program to develop our leaders for tomorrow.
In a statement to the media, the Board Chairman, Dr. Abboah Offei, said: “It is the mission of the Trust to enhance our human capital, maintain our educational infrastructure and facilities, and to ensure that no one is left behind in the pursuit of higher education and a brighter future. This is why we established a fund that speaks to the needs of our young people, to ensure their personal development as well as the overall development of the Akuapem Ridge.”
“For the past two months, we have been reviewing applications for the 2021 Cohort of the Akuapem Education Trust Scholars. We had over 90 applicants, out of which three have been selected to receive full funding and to be enrolled in our rigorous leadership and mentorship program.”
The selected scholars are Emmanuel Attuah, who is pursuing Nursing at the University of Health and Allied Sciences; Beatrice Nkansah, studying Midwifery at the University of Ghana and Daniel Ofori, studying Education at the Presbyterian College of Education.
The selection of these beneficiaries brings the total number of beneficiaries and fellows to fifteen (15). These young people will be prepared for leadership in the world of work and equipped to make meaningful changes in their communities.
Mr. Michael Asare Bediako, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Akuapem Education Trust expressed his gratitude to all donors and partners’ generosity in helping the Trust offer scholarships to young people, develop school infrastructure, and mentor our leaders for tomorrow.
