The distinguished personalities delivered goodwill messages to the scholarship awardees and advised them to study hard, return home and make Ghana proud.
The beneficiaries were pleased with Government efforts in training them for a future relevance.
Speaking to Dr. Stella Agyemang Duah, she thanked the Government of Ghana through the competent office of the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat headed by Mr. Kingsley Agyemang under which she got the opportunity to travel to Hungary for her Ph.D. studies. She also thanked the Hungarian Government and the Embassy for making this bilateral relationship possible.
She further reiterated that beneficiaries should study hard and return home to build Ghana as she is currently doing in Ghana. She stated that “education is a right, however, scholarship is a privilege, not a right. This Hungarian scholarship is a privilege and has become one of the popular scholarships at the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat.”
The event ended with an interaction section between scholarship awardees and the dignitaries present.
Rev Dr. Lawrence Tetteh wished all beneficiaries well and also prayed for them.
