The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia has launched an Online Scholarship Application and Administration System
The Programme, is President Akufo-Addo’s vision to digitize and formalize government service delivery processes.
The online Scholarship Application and Administration system under the auspices of the National Scholarship Secretariat will allow applicants apply from the comfort of their homes, take an aptitude test and be interviewed in their own districts without coming to Accra (The Capital of Ghana) as in the past.
This new system will ensure further transparency in the award of scholarships and reduce the risk of corruption as all workflow regarding scholarship applications will be streamlined. It will also provide accurate and reliable data on scholarship beneficiaries as well as tracking their academic progress.
Dr. Bawumia commended the leadership at the Secretariat for overseeing the massive improvements which have positively rebranded the outfit, especially the decentralization of the procedure of awarding scholarships nationwide.
“Today, every Ghanaian child, irrespective of their social, religious, ethnic background or political affiliation, can have the opportunity of enjoying a Government of Ghana scholarship” he said.
