Mrs Ahinkorah who also doubles as the municipal scholarship committee chairperson charged the beneficiaries to take their studies seriously in order not to lose the scholarship since it is for needy but brilliant students.

She also expressed gratitude to the president for his initiative to decentralise the scholarship scheme to empower MMDCEs and to ensure transparency in the award of scholarship nationwide.

The MCE also disclosed that since the launch of the district awards scheme about 30,000 students have benefited and are pursuing diploma, degree and PhD programmes.
