Scholarship Award Scheme
In September 2007 Bayport Savings and Loans Ghana established a Scholarship Award Scheme aimed at empowering students that have performed exceptionally well in their studies but are unable to afford further tuition. The scheme aims to identify the most talented scholars across the country by supporting all ten wards of the Teachers Union across all ten regions, thus enabling all learners across the country the chance to win a scholarship.
Each scholarship is awarded to the beneficiary for an eight-year period – four years’ senior high school education and four years’ tertiary education at university, college or polytechnic.
The scheme has proved so successful since its inception that Bayport Ghana is now awarding these scholarships annually as a permanent investment in the Ghanaian people and their future.
Key requirements are that learners must excel at their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), and that the scholarships must be awarded to students from an economically-disadvantaged background.
Bayport does not believe in simply investing in projects for its own sake but rather seeks to actively empower Ghanaians in their own self-development and to provide talented economically-disadvantaged individuals with the opportunity to fulfil their hopes, dreams and potential.
