The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has secured a scholarship package for Ghanaian students to study at the prestigious University of Memphis, Tennessee, in the United States of America (USA).
How to Apply for F1 US Student Visa, Requirements, Details and Cost
University of Memphis Ranking
Under the deal, qualified Ghanaian students will travel to Memphis University to undertake their undergraduate, master’s and PhD.
Up to 70 per cent of the opportunity is reserved for students who will undertake courses in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
The Ghana Scholarship Secretariat and the authorities of the University of Memphis last week signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to this effect at the school, sealing the deal that spells out the modalities for the implementation of the scholarship.
Briefing the Daily Graphic upon his return from the USA, the Registrar of the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat, Dr Kingsley Agyemang, noted that the Asantehene last year, as a special guest to the famed Memphis in May Festival, made a request for scholarship for Ghanaian students.
He said although the initial target was for only students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), the Asantehene later called for its expansion to cover more Ghanaian students.
“So a memorandum of understanding has been signed between the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat and the University of Memphis which will allow Ghanaian students to undertake their undergraduate, master’s and PhD at the university. This deal, I must confess, is a blessing for Ghanaians students,” he said.
Dr Agyemang said because the city of Memphis was home to some global brands, the secretariat was working out the possibility for Ghanaian students who got the opportunity to study at the university to undertake their internship there in those industries in a bid to ‘use one stone to kill two birds’.
“It is important to underscore that the city of Memphis is the headquarters of so many globally acclaimed companies such as Fed Ex, Autozone, Sedgwick Jone Incorporated, International Paper, Baptist Memorial Healthcare, First Horizon National Incorporated (NYSE: FHN) and Mueller Industries,” Dr Agyemang said.
“What this means is that academics and industry will gradually be bridged as these companies will provide essential internship programmes for Ghanaian students. Discussions between these companies and the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat have started,” he added.
He said this formed part of the nation’s drive to create the creative, innovative, knowledgeable and experienced human resource that would lead the charge in accelerating the industrialisation agenda to position the nation for accelerated development.
Asked about when Ghanaians students would be able to fly to Memphis to start their studies under this agreement, Dr Agyemang said very soon the opportunity would be advertised for prospective students to apply and those who made it would commence their studies at the Memphis University from September 2023.
Dr Agyemang commended the Asantehene for brokering such a crucial deal for Ghanaian students, particularly for those into the area of STEM, adding that “Otumfuo has shown leadership and demonstrated how he values education. This scholarship is not for just Asanteman but Ghana as a whole”.
“I must also say we are grateful to the former Minister of Education, now Energy Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, for his interest in this scholarship and the necessary inputs he provided us to make it successful,” he said.
After the MoU, the Ghanaian delegation, led by Dr Agyemang, toured the university to inspect lecture theatres, laboratories, hostels and other facilities.
The Ghanaian entourage also included the Head of International Relations & Partnerships, Richard Gyamfi; the Head of Treasury, Ghana Embassy, Washington D.C., Janet Koranteng, and a member of the Scholarship Review Committee, Nana Owiredu Wadie.
The University of Memphis was represented by the Interim Provost, Dr Abby L. Parril; the Executive Vice -President and Chief Operating & Financial Officer, Raaj Kurapati; the Vice Provost, and International Affairs, Dr Balaji Krishnan, and the Executive Director, Centre for International Education Services, Rebecca Laumann.

The Executive Director of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) Foundation, Dr. Dominic Eduah, says the local scholarship programme will offer 1,000 scholarships to Ghanaians in 2023.
Speaking at this year’s end-of-year media engagement in Takoradi, Dr. Dominic Eduah, said the GNPC Foundation Board of Trustees has already ordered for the local scholarship portal that was suspended for some reasons to be opened in January for qualified applicants to apply.
“Let me announce that the Board of Trustees of the Foundation has given clearance for the local scholarship portal to be opened next year for eligible needy but brilliant students to apply.
I think this announcement will bring to finality to the numerous questions most parents have been asking staff and management of the Foundation at any given opportunity”, he said.
In addition to the Foundation previously offering 5,550 scholarships to brilliant but needy Ghanaians to pursue various undergraduate, post-graduate, and PhD programmes in Ghanaian tertiary institutions, he also said the Ghanaian youth in the informal sector has not been left out.
“Through the Economic Empowerment Unit of the Foundation, 2,450 artisans from both technical and domestic trades were supported to write their National Vocational Training Institute (NVTI) Proficiency examinations.
Four hundred of these artisans have been equipped with start-up tools to commence their artisanal journeys while the remaining artisans are scheduled to receive their start-up tools in 2023.
These artisans were from rural and peri-urban communities in the Western, Western North, Central, Eastern, Greater Accra and Ashanti regions. Let me announce that all artisans who have successfully passed the NVTI Proficiency I & II examinations in 2022 are to receive their start-up tools within the first quarter of 2023.
Names of all successful artisans will be published on the Foundations’ website for verification. Training programmes have also been earmarked for fishermen and other small and medium enterprises next year”, he added.
Recounting the contributions of the GNPC Foundation to government’s infrastructural project, Dr. Eduah said a lot of successes have already been recorded in the provision of water, school, sanitary and sporting infrastructure.
“The GNPC Foundation, through its Environment and Social Amenities Unit, has over the past 5 years sponsored the construction of 702 borehole facilities in rural and peri-urban communities.
A considerable number of these boreholes are in the northern parts of the country. We have also funded the construction of educational facilities such as 141 classroom blocks for use in basic and senior high schools, 11 dormitory blocks, and 8 science laboratories for senior high schools.
In addition, the Foundation has funded the construction of 86 sanitary facilities in communities, schools, and markets across the country and 32 community pitches have been developed into standard astro turf facilities across Ghana for our youth.
Most of these projects have been completed and handed over to the beneficiaries, while the remaining projects are at advanced levels of completion. Let me say that measures have been put in place to ensure that next year most ongoing projects such as classroom blocks, boreholes, astro turfs, dormitories and sanitary facilities in various communities will be completed and handed over for use by the beneficiaries”, he noted.
Dr. Dominic Eduah thanked the media for their support.

University of Ghana (UG) 2022/2023 Latest Admission Cut-off Points
The President of the union, H.E Dennis Appiah Larbi-Ampofo, On October 31, 2022, led the leadership of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) on a visit to the office of the registrar of the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat with the rationale of finding out the in-depth cause of the delay in the release of funds to deserving students under Scholarship both at home and abroad.
At the meeting, the president of the Union, expressed heartily the stress scholarship beneficiaries are going through due to the delay in the disbursement of funds and pleaded that the Secretariat in collaboration with other stakeholders works on the immediate release of funds to beneficiaries.
The Registrar of the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat Dr Kingsley Agyemang in response revealed that the operational office of the scholarship secretariat was slowed down by the global economic crises coupled with the depreciation of the cedi which affected the budget allocated for beneficiaries. Hence, the delay towards the disbursal of funds to support students under Scholarship Schemes.
However, he added that the secretariat is yet to receive an amount of GHS 50 million funds from the Controller and Accountant General’s Department for onward disbursement.
In this regard, he assured the leadership of the Union that the Scholarship secretariat has taken necessary steps in collaboration with its stakeholders to ensure funds are released to appropriate organizations to help finance beneficiaries’ educational needs.
As education remains a right and not a privilege, the union without doubt shall keep to this charge, ensuring funds are disbursed to deserving students both at home and abroad. The president, therefore, appeals to all affected students to stay calm as we pursue this good together.
