SRC Yi Bi Boa Scholarship Scheme

The SRC Yi Bi Boa Scholarship is a scheme which seeks to provide financial support to needy and brilliant students of the University of Ghana.

Many students of the university face a lot of financial challenges so the SRC made it a core mandate to ensure that every student gets easy access to education irrespective of his or her financial status. It is for this reason that the SRC collaborates with The Students Financial Aid Office (SFAO) every year to enroll students onto the SRC Yi Bi Boa Scholarship Scheme.

 How To Apply

You are required to submit a completed application form with all supporting documents to the Students Financial Aid Office (SFAO). It is very important to respond fully to all the questions on the form which are applicable to you. You may be asked for additional information if any response or information on your application is not clear or needs correction.

Shortlisted applicants would be called for an interview. Successful applicants would receive a notification from the SFAO and the award would be credited to their University of Ghana student account.
