A representative from Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has paid a courtesy call on the Pro Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dora F. Edu-Buandoh.
Explaining the purpose of the visit, Mrs. Irene Asiamah, said that she was on campus as part of GNPC’s Education and Training Foundation which provided annual scholarship to students at the tertiary level. She said the visit was to present the scholarship package to undergraduate and postgraduate beneficiaries of the scholarship at UCC. “Though we came to present the scholarship award to the students but it is expedient for us to also interact with the university authorities’’ she said.
On her part, Prof. Edu-Buandoh expressed gratitude to GNPC for its commitment to support Ghanaian students to pursue higher education. However, she entreated GNPC to separate the school fees and the living expenses given to scholarship beneficiaries. She further urged GNPC to consider paying the stipends to beneficiaries during the first semester instead of the second semester so that the students could plan their lives better on campus. The Pro Vice-Chancellor asked Mrs. Asiamah to challenge the scholars to be involved in volunteering activities.
