Ashesi scholarships provide a life-changing education to high performing students who do not have access to the funds they need to attend college. For the 2016-2017 academic year, Ashesi tuition, room and board is just under USD $12,000.
Gifts of all sizes to the scholarship fund are pooled together and 100% of the funds go directly to the university. The Admissions Team has full discretion on how the scholarships are awarded to best meet student need.
The priority for Ashesi Foundation scholarship funds for 2017 are:
- Emergency scholarships for families that face unexpected hardship.
- Opportunity grants to allow students to participate in internships or extracurricular activities.
- Supplemental grants to cover meals and housing expenses.
Another priority is to strengthen the scholarship program by building an endowment. Ashesi is here to stay and we want to build an endowment which will support the needs of students for generations to come. Gifts of all sizes to Ashesi Foundation’s scholarship endowment strengthen the scholarship program in perpetuity and make a long term commitment to investing in Ashesi students.
If you are interested in honoring your family or community by naming a 4-year tuition, room, and board scholarship or endowed scholarship at Ashesi, please contact the foundation to learn more.
