Tertiary Education Scholarship Trust (TEST) for GHANA
TEST for GHANA was formed by a group of graduates from Linacre College, Oxford University and is a constituent member of the UK Charity, TEST for AFRICA’s family.
Its aim is to aid the social and economic development of Ghana by enabling bright but needy students to receive undergraduate education at Ghanaian public Universities and Polytechnics against their personal pledge to work for the benefit of their communities and their nation upon graduation.
The fundamental philosophy behind the formation of TEST for GHANA is the belief that one of the causes of poverty in developing countries is a lack of education. By enabling bright, yet financially challenged Ghanaians the opportunity to undertake local tertiary education through a programme of means tested scholarships in exchange for a personal bond requiring them to remain within Ghana, graduates are expected to make significant contributions to the social and economic development within their communities and their country.
Having commenced in Ghana, TEST for AFRICA is continuing to establish a network of local charities in those African countries which have a record of democracy and stability. Our charities in Africa are organised and managed by local residents, the majority of whom have received postgraduate education at the University of Oxford (Linacre College).
TEST for GHANA provides both full and partial scholarships for undergraduate study in a wide spectrum of academic and practical subjects which in the opinion of the local Trustees are best oriented towards the social and economic development needs of their countries and their communities. Awards are biased towards females (60:40) from the poorest regions of the countries, for University education (60:40) where appropriate, and are also available to handicapped students. Scholarships are offered to both new and to continuing students, and are reviewed annually against both need and academic performance.Scholarships are also not automatically renewed as each year students need to resubmit a renewal form which will be used for a reassessment, trustees can decide to discontinue an award if they are not satisfied with the conduct or academic performance of a beneficiary. An award can also be withdrawn if there is reason to believe that the financial circumstance has either changed for the better or was entirely falsified in the first instance. When this happens the student would need to make a refund or serve out the full bond as stipulated in the application form without recourse to any further funding from TEST for Ghana.
