Financial Aid

In December 2003 when I was completing my application forms for Ashesi University, I was hoping against all hope that I would be admitted in order to pursue my dream of becoming a great African programmer. At the same time I knew at the back of my mind that if I did get admitted to Ashesi, I might be unable to attend without some financial aid.

I was thrilled when I received my letter of admission together with information that I had a grant from Ashesi University. I joined the Ashesi community in April 2004 and so far I have no regrets for making the decision to attend.

Diversity is very important to Ashesi's mission, and so the university makes a significant number of financial aid awards every year. Ashesi's strong financial aid program demonstrates our commitment to a campus community that includes students from all economic backgrounds. Currently, close to half of all Ashesi students receive need-based financial aid from the university.
