Ashesi University’s strong financial aid program demonstrates their commitment to a campus community that includes students from all economic backgrounds. Thus, the university makes a significant number of financial aid awards every year.
Currently, close to 40 percent of all Ashesi students receive need-based financial aid from the university, and to date, the university has awarded over $2 million in financial assistance to students who need it.
Through a grant from the MasterCard Foundation, over the next five years (2012-2017), Ashesi University will offer full scholarships to smart underprivileged students who wish to pursue their undergraduate education at Ashesi University located in Ghana. Half of these scholarships will be awarded to non-Ghanaians.
The scholarships are only available to students whose families are able to demonstrate financial need and who are doing well in their subjects. Scholarship recipients typically achieve As’ and Bs’ on their transcripts and on national exam results.
