Fees and Scholarships
Scholarships at Ashesi
Through Ashesi’s generous Scholarship Program, we make a great education available to those who otherwise could not afford it. Thanks to a $13 million partnership with The MasterCard Foundation in Canada, Ashesi will be awarding significant financial support to qualified students who need such assistance.
Students who win scholarships will be eligible for full or partial financial support to cover their tuition fees, text books, housing, and meals. In addition, 40 scholarship recipients will receive laptops each year.
All scholarship recipients will also receive priority for a campus job to help meet their financial need. Students will typically work 10 hours or less each week and use the income earned for personal expenses. Students who do not receive scholarships are still eligible for admission and for campus job opportunities.
