Three continuing students of the Ghana Technology University College (GTUC), have been awarded Florence Onny scholarships to aid them in the completion of their courses at the university.
The award, which is aimed at encouraging excellence among students, is in recognition of the outstanding output of the three in their programmes of study.
Dennis Djan Mintah (Level 400), Ms Winne Benso-Tambo (Level 300) and Jonathan Nii Aryee (Level 200) were presented with the scholarship package at the matriculation ceremony for 843 fresh students of the university in Accra at the weekend.
GTUC instituted a memorial scholarship to honour the memory of the late Mrs. Florence Mamaa Nkrumah Onny, who demonstrated singular dedication and commitment to the University in her capacity as the Head of university and International Relations until her untimely death on July 5, 2012.
The Florence Nkrumah Onny Scholarship Fund seeks to provide partial or full financial support to continuing GTUC students with financial need who are pursing diploma, undergraduate and post-graduate studies. The support covers tuition, accommodation, and other academic expenses.
Addressing the ceremony, Dr. Osei Darkwa, President of GTUC, commended the awardees for the achievement, and urged the fresh students to emulate their performance.
He assured the students of assistance from the university, indicating that the management of the university would continue to promote academic excellence.
