Brighter Investment will provide financial support for 1,000 Ghanaian students across 8 tertiary institutions this year. The support will cover tuition and accommodation as well as living expenses for beneficiaries for as long as they are in school.
The support is targeted at high school leavers and university undergraduates in science and business-related programs that would require some form of financial support to earn a university degree. Students must earn between aggregates 6 and 16 in WASSCE or a first or upper class at the university to qualify for the support.
In addition to financing the university education of beneficiaries, Brighter Investment runs a high-impact mentorship program that is geared at ensuring the academic and professional success of beneficiaries. The mentorship program currently has over 200 students and 130 industry professionals on board and hopes to expand its scope in the coming months.
With 49 graduates and 172 students supported in the last four years, the results to date show that BI students have outperformed their peers, increased their incomes and are less likely to be unemployed with their degree. Brighter Investment is not a charitable organization. This means that students have to repay. The deal is: Brighter Investment pays for the higher education of talented students, and after graduating and getting a job, students repay a percentage of their income for a limited period of time. The repayment period is typically six years for a full four-year degree university program.
