Zambia Scholarship Fund Bursaries 2018-2019

About the Zambia Scholarship Fund

In 1998, Peggy Rogers lay down the ground work for the Zambia scholarship fund, as she saw the need that was and still is present within Zambia for education. Primarily the fund aided high school students to complete their high school career and to then study further as teachers. Thus, supplying greatly needed teachers to rural areas. This program began with funding of only ten students, however as the funding grew so did the possibilities.

The Zambia Scholarship/Bursary program has provided more than a thousand ton of books to school throughout Zambia, shipped from the USA. Additionally, it has also funded more than a 1000 students over the course of the last ten years, these included high school and college students.

The ZSF provides aid on all levels of education, working together with the current educational structure in Zambia. The main aim of this fund is to encourage students to become productive members, to be able to provide for their families. They build students optimism, confidence, enthusiasm, dignity and motivation to go from uneducated to become educated.

Libraries and textbooks are some of the things that have not really been heard of within Zambia schools. Thus, many children are only taught what the teacher can remember from their schooling days. The ZSF recovers textbooks that are being shipped to US landfills and redistributes it to the schools in Zambia.

Most students are eager and willing to sit on the floor, while listening to the teacher, just to learn something. There is no need for constructing schools, as there seem to be sufficient schools already in most areas, yet there is a great need for other assistance. The fund also aids with teacher’s kits, consisting of reading aids, paper, chalk and more. Additionally, they are also delivering desks, chairs, and maps to schools in Zambia, with a couple of computers to high schools.

The Zambia scholarship fund aims to help talented candidates reach their full potential. It aims to build students skills and knowledge in such a way that they can rebuild their nation and support themselves.

75 Ghanaians to Study in Chinese Varsities

The Government of the People’s Republic of China has awarded scholarships to 75 Ghanaian students to study at universities in China.

As part of the scholarship programme, most of the students who would offer various courses in Chinese would study the Chinese language for a year, before continuing their programmes of study.

Some of the programmes are Agriculture, Information Communication Technology (ITC), Chemistry, Business Management, Pharmacology, Electric Science & Technology, Finance, Public Administration and Mass Communication.

The Charge D’Affairs of the Chinese Embassy, Mr. Wang Lushan, at a farewell reception for the students in Accra yesterday, emphasized the importance of education to Ghana’s human resource capacity building and development agenda. Hence, he said, the Chinese government’s commitment to providing quality education for the children and the youth in the country.He also expressed China’s unflinching support for Ghana in the area of education.

“The bilateral co-operation on education under the framework of China-Africa Co-operation Forum has yielded fruitful results, ” he remarked, adding that the Government of the People’s Republic of China had also provided short-term training opportunities for about 700 Ghanaian officials, professionals and technicians since 2006.

“We have increased the Chinese government’s scholarship from 20 slots to 75 this year. We have built three rural model schools in the Great Accra, central and Western regions this year,” Mr Lushan said.

He pointed out that the Chinese government had also sent two lecturers and some volunteers to teach Chinese language at the University of Ghana, Legon.

He expressed conviction that the support was in the right direction, as it would increase the human resource capacity of the people of Ghana.

Mr Lushan gave an assurance that China will continue to provide scholarships, training programmes and other forms of educational assistance to Ghana.

He, therefore, encouraged the students to focus on their studies and make friends with the Chinese people in order to be able to learn from each other.

“It is my sincere hope that when you graduate from China, you will not only apply what you have learnt in China to build a better Ghana, but would also serve as ambassadors for friends between our two peoples,” he stated.

The Registrar of the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat, Mr Fuseini Lansah, in an address read on his behalf, expressed appreciation to the Government of the People’s Republic of China for its tremendous support to the human resource development of Ghana. He urged the students to take advantage of the opportunity offered them, to be good ambassadors of Ghana and make the country proud.

According to him, reports reaching the secretariat indicated that most Ghanaians studying abroad were doing better than their counterparts from other countries and attributed this to the quality and strength of the Ghanaian educational system.Mr Lushan, however, cautioned the students to be law-abiding and return to Ghana when their programme were over to support the country’s growing economy.

A representative of the students, Mr Halid Mahama, expressed appreciation for the opportunity offered them by the Government of the People’s Republic of China to study in that country.

The students were later treated to various Chinese dishes.
