A pro-poor Non-Governmental Organization, Black Santa, has launched The Hope Scholarship Challenge (THSC) aimed at identifying brilliant students and award them with scholarships through what it described as “academic competition.”

Black Santa said it would award qualified candidates approximately Ghc 13,500-Ghc 18000, depending on the school of their choice after a written examination. The award of the above mentioned scholarship to deserving students according to Ms. Irene Ocran, an Executive Member of Black Santa would be in the order of priority based on the highest scored achieved after written examination in general knowledge, critical thinking, mathematics including what the NGO described  as “fill-in-questions.”

Speaking at the launch of the education initiative in Accra, she said students who are eligible must have attended high school in Ghana and written WASSCE before writing THSC exams in the year of the award. Applicants, she adds must not be related to any Board of Director or staff of THSC to prevent a conflict of interest situation.

Applications forms according to Ms. Ocran would be available at partner bank or from online. Applicants, she adds must write a letter of application which should contained brief information about the applicants and its plans and address it to the scholarship committee.

Opening of application, the Executive Member of Black Santa stated starts from January 3, 2019 and end on May 30, 2019. Results, she said, will be published on its website as well as the dailies.
