Limited Karpowership Ghana Company Limited students at the Takoradi Technical University (TTU) in the Western Region. The beneficiaries are students offering Civil, Electrical or Mechanical Engineering programmes.

They were selected through a competitive process that saw over 100 students apply. The applicants were screened, and the top 20 were eventually selected to benefit from the scholarship scheme. The tuition fees and other educational expenses of the beneficiaries will be paid for by the company.

Ms. Amarquaye said the Karpowership TTU Scholarship Scheme will also offer opportunities to beneficiary students to undertake internship programmes with the company when they are on vacation. “We would want these students to have a practical feel of what they are studying in class. Our aim is to impact lives wherever we operate,” she said.
