The La Area of The Church of Pentecost has granted scholarships totaling GH¢30,000.00 to six brilliant but needy students from various districts in the Area in Accra to pursue various courses at the Pentecost University (PU).
The scholarship is for this academic year and renewable based on the performance of the students.
The six students made up of three young men and three ladies qualified for the scholarship based on their outstanding performance and meeting the requirements for the educational scholarship scheme of the church. The package covers their tuition, facility user fees, and accommodation, as well as SRC dues for their four years’ stay at the University.
The six will be pursuing courses in Nursing, Information Technology, Business Administration, and Physician Assistantship.
Presenting the letters of funding to the students, the La Area Head of the church, Apostle John Osei Amaniampong, cautioned them to eschew falling into bad companies, but rather associate with equally brilliant colleagues to improve upon their lives to ensure the continuous support by the church.
A parent of a beneficiary, Beatrice Toe, thanked the church for coming to the rescue of the students in their most difficult times.
