Senator Ngam's Maiden Edition: Innovative Higher Education Scholarship Scheme Launched


            Senator Honoré Ngam

The office of the SDF Senator for Boyo Division, Senator Honoré Ngam has announced through a launch of a scholarship program for students of Boyo Division, aspiring to pursue their studies in any of the eight state universities in Cameroon, to begin this academic year 2020/2021.

Modelled after the personal experience of young Senator Honore Ngam and informed by the raging poverty situation in his native Boyo Division, the scholarship program award is timely to fund for students who just passed the GCE 'A' levels this year and would be finding difficulty sourcing finances to continue with their education. 

The minimum scholarship award is FCFA 50000 each and per year for the next three years of a university course, modestly beginning with a maximum of four scholarships this year.

Recipients are selected based on a list of criteria, incorporating elements of talent, personal dedication and more importantly, financial needs. Academic excellence is required but not a criteria for selection.

Students of Boyo origin and from around the country are invited to apply and most be enrolled in one of the state universities for the 2020/2021 academic year.

Applications are received by a panel of judges who are noted for their impartiality and where expertise range across a spectrum of fields for which scholarships are awarded. The judges are independent of Senator Ngam's political leanings and would operate under a strict conflict of interest policy and anti-discrimination clause.

Scholarship preference would be given to paying students' tuition fees and they are encouraged to seek funding from other sources to take care of their lodging, feeding, medical costs, and other school needs outside the scholarship scope.

In order to qualify for the application, the following items must be provided before Thursday October 15,2020:

-Completed application form
-Motivation letter stating the applicants commitment to complete the three years university course under the scholarship program
-Recommendation letter from a parent or Guardian, stating the financial needs and engagement to source for the counterpart funding for candidates other school needs

Recipients would be notified not later than October 20,2020, and are requested to send applications through the email: senatorscholarships2020@gmail.com and on WhatsApp : 675371937.
