    Spotlight on graduate scholarships: Ernest Plange Kwofie

    What has been the impact of receiving the Scholarship?

Without this scholarship, even if I had to pay one tenth of the cost then it would have still been a very difficult thing. But with a fully funded scholarship, I’m just thinking about books and not my pockets.
