Scholarships Empower Students to Serve the Greater Good
Ashesi scholarships make a life-changing education possible for nearly half of our student body. For Derick Omari ’18, a scholarship provided him with the tools and skills needed to found Tech Era, his award-winning social enterprise. In August, Tech Era partnered with the Ashesi D:Lab to launch an assistive technology makerspace in Ghana.
Student Housing Provides an Immersive Campus Experience
Thanks to support from generous donors, almost 50% of current students live in on-campus housing. Student housing is vital to the growth of Ashesi: it contributes to diversity and inclusion, attracts more women to Ashesi, and strengthens our financial sustainability. Here, students share how living on campus has shaped their Ashesi experience.
Research Drives Innovation and African-Led Solutions
The World Bank reports that only 1% of global research scholarship comes from Africa. We believe in the importance of African-led research and under the leadership of Ashesi’s new Provost, the school is building a thriving research ecosystem which will help ensure Ashesi’s ability to recruit and retain top student and faculty talent.
