About TEST Ghana
Tertiary Education Scholarship Trust (TEST) for Ghana is a Ghanaian Charitable Trust registered in 2008 (number G-23266). TEST for Ghana was formed by a group of graduates from Linacre College, Oxford University and is a constituent member of the UK Charity, TEST for AFRICA’s family.
Its aim is to aid the social and economic development of Ghana by enabling bright but needy students to receive undergraduate education at Ghanaian public Universities and Polytechnics against their personal pledge to work for the benefit of their communities and their nation upon graduation.
The fundamental philosophy behind the formation of TEST for GHANA is the belief that one of the causes of poverty in developing countries is a lack of education. By enabling bright, yet financially challenged Ghanaians the opportunity to undertake local tertiary education through a programme of means tested scholarships in exchange for a personal bond requiring them to remain within Ghana, graduates are expected to make significant contributions to the social and economic development within their communities and their country.
Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is a university in Kumasi, Ashanti, Ghana. The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is the public university established in the country, as well as the largest university in Kumasi Metropolis and Ashanti.
The KNUST has, since January 2005, transformed from its previous centralized system of administration into significantly decentralized one called the Collegiate system. Under this system, the various faculties have been condensed into six colleges. Since its inception, the University has been administered on the Faculty-based system.
Scholarships are available for pursuing undergraduate programme in the field of Land Economy and Real Estate.
The scholarship is hosted at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana.
